Little World Series
The Little World Series was started only one year after the World Series, in 1904. Played sporadically over the next three decades, the title of the match-up was changed to the Junior World Series in 1932. The Little World Series featured the top teams in the American Association and the International League, arguably the top two minor league circuits of the time.
