What Team Has Lost the Most World Series?

The New York Yankees are the Major League Baseball (MLB) team that has lost the most World Series, with 13 losses as of 2014. Dating back to 1903, the World Series is a championship between the top American League and National League teams to determine who can win four out of seven games. While the New York Yankees hold the record for losing the most World Series championships, they also are the team that has won the most, with 27 World Series wins as of 2014. In addition, the Yankees have held more consecutive World Series wins than any other team, with six different back-to-back winning streaks (1927-1928; 1936-1939; 1949-1953; 1961-1962; 1977-1978; and 1998-2000.)

More about the World Series:

  • The World Series has been canceled twice since its 1903 introduction: In 1904, after the National League New York Giants refused to play against the American League Boston Pilgrims who they deemed an inferior league, and in 1994 due to a players’ strike.
  • Up until 1922, the winners of the World Series would receive medallions or pocket watches. It wasn’t until 1967 that championship rings became the norm.
  • Only one non-American team has won the World Series: the Toronto Blue Jays won in 1992 and 1993.
