The Fall Classic,” as the World Series is often called, is the peak of the baseball season, when the best in the American League and the best in the National League square off for the championship of Major League baseball. Many of baseball's greatest players have performed at their best and many of baseball's most memorable moments have occurred during the World Series. But the World Series is more than a simple means of crowning a champion. It is a national event, a yearly cultural milepost that guides the memories of many Americans.
