Did You Know?
â€¢ The five oldest stadiums in MLB are Boston's Fenway Park (opened 1912), Chicago's Wrigley Field (opened in 1914 for the short-lived Federal League), New York's Yankee Stadium (opened 1923), Washingtonâ€™s RFK Stadium (opened 1960), and Los Angeles' Dodger Stadium (opened 1962).
â€¢ Since the postseason expansion to include wild-card teams, three wild-card teams have won the World Series: Florida Marlins (1997 and 2003), Anaheim (now Los Angeles) Angels (2002), and Boston Red Sox (2004).Â Four other wild-card qualifiers -- the 2000 New York Mets, 2002 San Francisco Giants,Â 2005 Houston Astros and 2006 Detroit Tigers -- advanced to the World Series but lost.
â€¢ Of all expansion teams, the Arizona Diamondbacks were the fastest to win a World Series (first season 1998, won in 2001), followed by the Florida Marlins (first season 1993, won in 1997), and New York Mets (first season 1962, won in 1969).
â€¢ The Braves have represented the National League in the World Series in all three cities the team has called home: Boston (won 1914, lost 1948), Milwaukee (won 1957, lost 1958), and Atlanta (lost 1991, lost 1992, won 1995, lost 1996, lost 1999).
