Baseball Trivia

This leaves only the D-Rays, Rangers, Mariners, and Expos/Nats as the only MLB teams/franchises never to have appeared in a World Series. Each of those teams is from different stages of MLB expansion. Did you know that Nolan Ryan is the highest profile player (and maybe the only one) to have played his entire career with all four 1960-61 expansion teams?

Not too many more teams have never won it. We’ve had  three first-time winners in the last ten years. The Rockies make the fifth first-time appearance in those same ten years. Only the Astros failed in their first WS attempt.
