This layer shows the Major League Baseball World Series Champions from 1903 to the present. Each year's winner is identified by a team-logo icon placed in the team's current stadium, with the exceptions described below. The placemark information includes the games won by each of the two contestants and beginning in 1955, the Series' MVP along with the team's primary logo.

The first World Series ever played, in 1903, was won by the Boston Americans, who later became the Boston Red Sox. In recognition of it being the very first Series, the placemark is located near where the homeplate of the Americans' Huntington Avenue Baseball Grounds was then located. (That location is now part of Northeastern University.)

Some teams, such as the Dodgers, have moved to other cities since their World Series victories. In these cases, the championship marker remains in the city where it was won and is at the original location of the stadium where the championship team played. (Several ballparks where World Series were played no longer exist; among them are Shibe Park in Philadelphia (later re-named for Connie Mack), Ebbet's Field in Brooklyn, NY and the Polo Grounds in New York, NY.)

Please note that no World Series was played in 1994, because of the cancellation of the season as a result of the players' strike. In addition, no World Series was held in 1904.

The 1903 World Series did not take place at Fenway Park. Rather it was at the Huntington Polo Grounds, where Northeastern University now stands. There is a very cool statue of Cy Young on campus.

I like the file though, enjoy the links with baseball history.

The 1914 WS winner was the Boston Braves (NL), not the Boston Red Sox (AL).
Re: Baseball World Series Winners 1903 - 2008 (MLB) LuciaM 3/15/06 2:15 AM
for catching that. I corrected it and added what I think was their logo at the time.
Re: Baseball World Series Winners 1903 - 2008 (MLB) LuciaM 3/15/06 2:37 AM
I added a note to that effect to the placemark. Thanks.

Congratulations to the St. Louis Cardinals, who won the 2006 World Series Championship tonight, the 10th in their franchise's history. The collection has been updated with the results of this year's contest.

A wonderful post you made for Baseball fans and much appreciated but ... sometime in the future you might consider adding markers at the original stadium sites for teams that have moved "across town or down the block".

Here in Maryland we celebrate our many Baseball, Football championships and playoff series at old Baltimore/Memorial Stadium on the 900 East 33rd Street site since 1922.

We "Balmer" fans have OUR placemarks on the old "Old Grey Lady".

Thanks. I've actually been to baseball games at Memorial Stadium - I went to college in the neighborhood. But generally speaking, if a team just moved to a new ballpark in the same city, my placemarks move with the team.

Nicely done. Just one thing. The Red Sox victory in 2004 was their first since 1918 not 1916. 86 years was long enough to wait!

Chang W. Lee/The New York Times


In their first year at the new Yankee Stadium (now viewable in Google Earth), the New York Yankees have won Major League Baseball's 105th World Series Championship. The 2009 win is their 27th Championship, following the win of their 40th American League Pennant.

Hideki Matsui, who played on three championship teams in Japan's baseball league before joining the Yankees in 2003, was named the Series' Most Valuable Player, driving in six runs in the last game..

More from the New York Times.

Congratulations to the National League's San Francisco Giants, winners of Major League Baseball's 106th World Series Championship, and their fans. The Giants defeated the Texas Rangers of the American League by 4 games to 1. Edgar Renteria, who batted .412 for the Series, was named the Most Valuable Player.

Although the underdog coming into the Series, their victory was driven by outstanding pitching performances, including the clinching win by Tim Lincecum, the reigning two-time National League Cy Young Award winner

This is the sixth title to date for the Giants and the first won by the franchise since it moved to the West Coast in 1958. Their previous five championships, the last of which was won in 1954, came when the team played in New York City.

This was the Texas Rangers' first appearance in the World Series. They remain one of 8 teams which have never won the title.
Re: Baseball World Series Winners 1903 - 2011 (MLB) LuciaM 10/29/11 12:42 AM
Congratulations to the National League's St. Louis Cardinals and their fans, winners of the 2011 World Series over the Texas Rangers. This represents the eleventh World Series Championship for the St. Louis Cardinals, the most in the National League and the second most in the Major Leagues (to the New York Yankees).

This year's contest was the first since 2002 to go to the full seven games, as a result of not one but two thrilling comebacks by the Cardinals, who were facing elimination in Game 6. They first overcame a two run deficit to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth inning. After Texas scored two runs in the top of the tenth to take the lead once more, St. Louis tied the game yet again in the bottom of the inning. They then scored in the bottom of the eleventh inning to send the Series to a deciding Game 7.

This was the second appearance in the World Series by the Texas Rangers, who lost last year's contest to the San Francisco Giants.

Congratulations to the National League's San Francisco Giants, winners of Major League Baseball's 108th World Series Championship, and their fans. The Giants defeated the Detroit Tigers of the American League by 4 games to none. Pablo Sandoval, who hit three home runs in the first game of the Series, was named the Most Valuable Player. 

This is the seventh title to date for the Giants, the second in three years and the second won by the franchise since it moved to the West Coast in 1958. Their first five championships, the last of which was won in 1954, came when the team played in New York City.

Please note that that the link to the 2012 World Series on Baseball-Almanac.com included in the placemark is not yet live. It should be online in a few weeks.
