   This 2016 World Series the Cubs and Indians are playing against each other. Cleveland Indians are 94-67, the Chicago Cubs are 103- 58.

   The World Series is the annual championship series of Major League Baseball in North America, contested since 1903 between the American League champion team and the National League champion team. Prior to 1969, the team with the best regular season win-loss record in each league automatically advanced to the World Series; since then each league has conducted a championship series preceding the World Series to determine which teams will advance. As of 2015, the World Series has been contested 111 times, with the AL winning 64 and the NL winning 47. The winner of the World Series championship is determined through a best-of-seven playoff, and the winning team is awarded the Commissioner's Trophy.As the series is played in October , during the autumn season in North America, it is often referred to as the Fall Classic.

   The Cubs won back-to-back World Series championships in 1907 and 1908, but have not won the championship since. The Indians have won two World Series championships, in 1920 and 1948.

    Last year the New York Mets and Kansas City Royals. Royals took the W. Who will be taking the W this year? Brandi Castaneda a teacher here at PHS said “Indians are going to win. Just watch Major League, they won back in that movie too” Clayton “CJ” Moore said “Cubs because it's there town”
