First in Majors: World Series Champions

Since I try to put something up here at least once every calendar month, I feel obligated to give you this list. It's not much, but it'll have to do for now. My readers have my deepest apologies for not giving them something better.

I've created master lists of each item, but several of them are incomplete, as Retrosheet doesn't yet have precise data for certain years, and many players from recent teams are still active. Because I can though, I thought I'd publish the only one I currently can put up completely: First in Majors.
