We all remember the 2002 All-Star game. Both teams famously ran out of pitchers, thus ending the game in an embarrassing, unsatisfying tie. Not wanting another episode like this, the following year the MLB decided the game would now determine home field advantage for the World Series.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of a so-called “meaningful All-Star game.” It also marks the 10th anniversary of hearing people debate this topic. In honor of this anniversary, let’s look at the past 10 World Series, and the effect home field advantage has had on them.
Below is a list of the past 10 series, featuring the home and away teams, which had the better record, who won the series, and in how many games.
