55. The best baseball players in the world play in the Major Leagues.

Just ask any great young 16-year-old baseball player in The Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Canada, Mexico, or other countries with baseball talent, where they would like to play pro ball. There is no other professional baseball league in the world even remotely close. The ultimate goal of young baseball players, regardless of country, is to play in the Major Leagues. There are players from dozens of countries other the the USA playing in the Majors. Also, it was named the World Series 115 years ago when the USA was the only country in the world with an organized professional league playing at a high level. The National League was formed in the 1870s, and The American League came few years later. They took various versions/rules of an old, crude stick and ball sport and turned it into a professional sport similar to what is played today.

If the rest of the world really laughs at the World Series, then they are ignorant fools when it comes to the sport of professional baseball.
