MLB: Top 5 World Series of the last 25 years
The last 25 years have seen some great World Series, but which ones truly rule the roost?
The 2017 World Series has come and gone and the Houston Astros are champions for the first time in their history! In a Fall Classic that seemed destined to swing in either the Astros’ or Los Angeles Dodgers’ favor from the get-go, fans instead got a hard-fought seven-game series that will go down in history as one of the best, perhaps even rivaling last year’s tilt between the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians.
This series has been part of a trend of the past 25 years when several World Series matchups have etched their ways into the history books for more than just saying which team won over the other. Between the New York Yankees’ run in the late 1990s to the stunning back-and-forth nature of the 2014 matchup between the San Francisco Giants and the Kansas City Royals, the last 25 years have seen quality baseball played in October to the delight of millions of fans.
That said, just so we can celebrate the end of baseball season for one more day, here are the top five World Series of the last 25 years.
