The World Series will have a fresh look to it this year, after the Philadelphia Phillies and Tampa Bay Rays battled through to the "Fall Classic".
The Rays - formerly known as the Devil Rays - were the worst team in baseball in 2007 but staged a remarkable turnaround to win the American League, while the Phillies saw off more-fancied teams to win the National League pennant.
BBC Sport looks at how the Major League season has unfolded, and examines who will be the key men for each side.
