Speaking of Baseball.....

Why is it we call it the 'world series' in professional baseball...when they do not play other teams from around the world??? I think that would be cool.
Man...i really should get back to work...

Was it the World Series before there were Canadian teams? Seems like I heard somewhere that the Canadian teams were why they called it that.
The baseball league my husband and I play in is part of a national organization and they have no leagues outside of the US - but they call their annual championship series the World Series also! And if I recall correctly, the current Senior Softball championships are also called the World Series.

It seems that with the Canadian teams involved it would be the 'North American Champions'. I don't know why I dwell on these things...lol
