WORLD SERIES THE FINAL FOUR

ROAD TO THE ROBERT E. McCABE CHAMPIONSHIP
SEASON 29 WORLD SERIES

Washington, DC (McC.com) – With Playoffs down to the Final 4 clubs we wanted to look at the team’s history and the players that made this year such a big success. As we take a look at the clubs remaining we find 3 of top 4 seeds, Washington Nationals (1), San Diego Padres (1), and Houston Astros (2) makeup ¾ of the Final 4 with the surprising sixth seed Cleveland Indians rounding out the field. Here is a few interesting stats we think our readers need take a look at before picking up the phone and contacting the local bookie.

Listed below is each team’s All-Time record in the League Championship Series and the World Series and Seasons 29 HEAD to HEAD matchup record.
