Only US and Canada teams are participating and calling it World Series is strange.

Congratulations to the Braves. I'm so glad that those cheating Astros didn't win. Yes, they may not have cheated this year, but the stain of years past lives on.

The "World Series" name was first used way back in the 1880s when the whole baseball world was essentially the US, and it has stuck ever since

The MLB industry, being a huge stickler for tradition, isn't keen on changes

The Braves lost their best player to injury mid-season, stuck in 3rd place in their division, and didn't even have a winning record until Aug 7th (meaning they were a below-0.500 team with less than 2 months left in the season) - yet now here they are the champions, the latest date for a team with a losing record to win the World Series

Point is well taken but the players are from all over the world.

Anyway - my Mom is thrilled with the Braves Championship. That makes me happy.

Japan's national league was established before 1880.

It should be called the MLB Series ... the world doesn’t get to participate in it!

It doesn't have to be professional to decide who is the strongest in the world.

According to Japanese Wiki, Japan's first team was established in 1878. And the first international games against Americans in Japan, which was in 1896, Japan team won twice in a row.

First of all, the "World Series" is a professional competition, and it's always been used in a professional capacity. So it's not a moniker like a "World Cup" where it's been used for any capacity

The first Japan team is an amateur club team - anybody can join a club; a complete novice can be in a club; it's just for fun. Those early international friendly games were to build up friendly relations and with resident foreigners - are you actually taking that seriously?

You have to separate in your head that the "World Series" is some sort of a "World Cup" - it's just a professional moniker from a long time ago when the baseball world was in a different situation. It's just a professional name that the MLB won't change because they're sticklers to tradition. Don't let that get under you skin
