Ever since Abner Doubleday invented the game of baseball, the national pastime has undergone changes with every generation. At first, all teams were amateurs, but with Lip Pike, the first professional baseball player, the game changed. Then there were the two big leagues, National and American, in competition for fans. When they combined for the World Series, it was magical, and the formula was born. There was the deadball era. The expansion era. The steroid era. Every period had its heroes, and every hero has his fans. The baby boom generation watched as great teams from the Yankees and the Reds took the World Series by storm. Generation X had the Braves of the early 1990s, and Millennials have watched baseball history as the Red Sox, Cubs, and Giants all won World Series championships long overdue.
