As a Minnesota Twins season ticket holder I would have liked to have been able to vote for the Twins:( . But since they lost I voted for the Tigers because of they came out of nowhere this year and had a great season. They are the sentimental pick.

Why is it called World series when it's only in America (or USA) ?

Because we dominate the world:p . Nowadays almost half of the players are from outside the US. Most of the players are from the Carrabean (Dominican, Puerto Rico, Cuba, etc.), but there are players from Canada, Japan, Korea, etc.

Flips beat me to my original comment,  There is only one true world team sport thats the real FOOTBALL :D

Why is it that american sports are minority sports elsewhere in the world?
I'm not anti US sports btw, was big into American Football when it was first broadcast in the UK and the 49'ers were a good team

i couldnt have put it better myself !

just returned from a week in NYC i tried to get into the baseball but it didnt do much for me , nearly as dull as cricket , there was one amazing catch by some player for the Mets , but they still lost , and i got fed up reading about some player called Kenny Rogers and his dirty hands .

i did manage to watch my first full American football game last Monday night , the Giants beat some other team who i cannot remember but the did replace one bad quarter back with an even worse one at half time but still lost .
