The relationship between the two leagues were rocky at first, but several teams from the two leagues squared off for exhibition games after the 1903 season. Baseball has always come with its gambling issues, but the 1919 World Series brought gambling to a public scale. Eighth Chicago White Sox players allegedly threw the 1919 World Series after being offered $100,000 to do so. All players involved, even Buck Weaver, who decline to participate in throwing the game, were banned for life. In 1920, the New York Yankees set a new standard in baseball. From 1920-1964, the Yankees played in 29 World Series games and won 20 of them. In 1969, a structured playoff series was created, and the National and American Leagues were divided into two respective divisions. The two division winners played each other in a best-of-five League Championship Series until it was changed to best-of-seven in 1985.
