1918 Season

World Series Winner: Boston Red Sox

Red Sox over the Cubs (4–2)

This World Series was held in September because World War I work orders prematurely ended the regular season. This was the last Red Sox win for 86 years, often blamed on the Curse of the Bambino, if you believe in things like that.
