Top 10 Teams with the Most World Series Wins

It is easy to judge teams in Major League Baseball on the number of rings they possess in their history. Just like with most arguments between fans of the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox, this is where they begin. The number of World Series titles tells a story about how successful a team has been in their history compared to others, but it doesn’t always give the complete story.

When you take a look at each team in the sport and the number of titles, you’ll notice that the Miami Marlins have two titles, despite having only been a part of the league since 1993. In fact they won the World Series in their only two playoff appearances. What they were able to do was remarkable in the sport, but it didn’t last in either case as they unloaded all of their stars following the titles. Then you look at teams like the Washington Nationals or Seattle Mariners who have been around since 1969 and 1977 respectively, yet neither team has even reached the Fall Classic.

Making the World Series is one thing and winning the championship is another thing entirely. In the 1990s, the Atlanta Braves were in the World Series five times, but claimed just a single World Series title. It takes a different type of finesse and skill to put everything together to get the wins in the big series and over the course of history, one team has found it amazingly simple to get the “W” when it meant to most, while many others struggled.

Everyone knew the Bronx Bombers would top this list. With a Major League Baseball-best 27 World Series championships, the Yankees have had the most chances to register World Series wins with 40 pennants. In their entire existence, the team has one of the best winning percentages in the sport and would surpass 10,000 total wins in their history with 87 wins this season. Helping to lead the way for the Yankees in the postseason are some of the best players to ever compete in the Fall Classic including Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Reggie Jackson, Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, and Babe Ruth.
