Despite its name, the World Series is not a "world championship" in the same sense as the FIFA World Cup or the Cricket World Cup because it is not between national teams, but is limited to Major League Baseball teams, which represent individual cities and states (currently of the United States and Canada only).
One of these series at the end of 1903 was a meeting between the two pennant winners and is known as the 1903 World Series.
