Winning the World Series is not easy. Only 25 players each year have that privilege of spraying champagne all over each other sometime toward the end of October no matter how deserving the other team or players on that team may be.
Each team plays 162 regular season games with a common goal: To make it to the postseason and eventually win a World Series. The San Francisco Giants are the 2012 World Series Champions, leaving 29 other teams with 25 players on their rosters sulking at home.
Winning a World Series is one of the toughest things in sports to do. Some of the best players ever to play the game retired without a World Series ring on their finger. Ted Williams is arguably the best hitter of all-time and never won a ring whereas Francisco Cervelli won one in 2009 with the New York Yankees.
Baseball isn’t a fair game and just because someone has was it takes to play in the major leagues, works hard every day and puts up great numbers, doesn’t mean they are guaranteed four wins in October.
Here is a player from each team who deserves to win a World Series before they retired.
