Major League Baseball has been an American institution for over a century. Each year, the two best baseball teams in the two MLB leagues (American and National) compete in a best-of-seven championship series known as the World Series in order to determine the top team in the game.

The World Series has served, at times, as more than a mere game of baseball: it has been a metaphor for America's successes and failures, through two World Wars, a Depression, a contest against communism, a race for space, and the emergence of ultra-lucrative athletic contracts.
