Baseball is a popular team sport that is played with a bat and ball between two teams of nine players each. The objective of the game is to score runs by hitting the ball and running around four bases in a counterclockwise direction, while the opposing team tries to prevent the runner from reaching home plate and scoring.

Each team takes turns playing offense and defense, with the pitcher on the defensive team throwing the ball to a catcher who is positioned behind home plate. The offensive player tries to hit the ball and then run around the bases, while the defensive team tries to catch the ball and get the offensive player out.

Baseball is a sport that requires a combination of physical skill and mental strategy, as players must be able to throw, catch, and hit the ball accurately while also anticipating the movements of their opponents. Baseball has a long and rich history in the United States, where it is often referred to as the "national pastime." The game is also played in other countries around the world and is recognized as an official Olympic sport.

The World Series is the championship series of Major League Baseball (MLB), the professional baseball league in the United States and Canada. The World Series is played annually in October, between the champion of the National League and the champion of the American League.

The World Series is a best-of-seven playoff series, with the winner being crowned the World Series champion. The first team to win four games is declared the winner, and the series alternates between the home stadiums of the two teams involved.

The World Series has a long and storied history, dating back to the early days of professional baseball in the late 19th century. Some of the most memorable moments in baseball history have taken place during the World Series, including Babe Ruth's famous "called shot" home run in 1932 and Bill Mazeroski's walk-off home run in Game 7 of the 1960 World Series.

The World Series is widely regarded as one of the most important events in American sports, and it draws millions of viewers from around the world every year. The winning team is awarded the Commissioner's Trophy, which is named after the commissioner of baseball and features an engraved image of a baseball player.
