Although the "Fall Classic" as we know it didn't begin until 1903, major-league baseball had several versions of a post-season championship series before that. In 1884, the Providence Grays of the National League outplayed the New York Metropolitan Club of the American Association in a 3 game series for what was originally called "The Championship of the United States."


I'm lookin' for the modern day World Series as we know it today. :-)

England's Worcester Canoe Club set the world record for paddling a hand-propelled bathtub. The 25 man team covered a distance of 55 miles, 425 yards in 24 hours on September 28 and 29, 1979.

W2G DieHardCubbie...Indeed, the first World Series in 1903 was the 2nd longest. The longest was 15 days in earthquake-delayed 1989. Well done. :-B
