Only the final is called the World Series. How you gonna call a team the world champion when the most of the world are not even involved.
"MLB" is the league's
name, not tournament's name. And yup, exactly, it's called MAJOR
League Baseball. Not American Baseball Premier League or American BigBash/Friendslife blah blah league. It's the MAJOR league open to all professionals from all countries.
All in all, the World Series does sound a bit arrogant in baseball, but applies more appropriately to MLC than MLB and it does make it more prestigious than just calling "American Baseball/Cricket League."
