The Boston Red Sox were in the 2010 World Series. The New York Yankees were also in the 2010 World Series.

Why couldn't this happen?


Both teams are in the American League. In the World Series, there is one team from the National League and one team from the American League.

What Next?

I don't even like baseball and I got this right away. Of course I live in New England so that might have something to do with it.

aah! i was thinkin basketball. i guessed 'because theyre both an the east coast.

Why can't they play baseball in the winter? I think players running through the snow would make it more fun and unpredictable.

It hasn't happened, because 2010 hasn't happened yet, but it could. In 1990, could the 2010 World Series be between the Milwaukee Brewers and the New York Yankees? It could, even though they were in the same league back then. MLB might realign or otherwise change the rules between now and 2010. Unlikely, but stranger things have happened.
