The best way to stay connected to the World Series is to follow @MLB for highlights, score updates, analysis and behind-the-scenes photos and videos. You’ll also want to jump into the conversation with the #WorldSeries hashtag, which is also prominently displayed along the dugouts in each stadium.
This year, fans can see all the key moments within their Twitter timelines. @MLB has partnered with Samsung to deliver the best in-game highlights from each game in real time.
Kansas City fans should follow @Royals, find players on Twitter to follow here and use the team’s postseason rallying cry, #TakeTheCrown.

Fans of the San Francisco Giants should follow @SFGiants, follow players here and join the Twitter convo with #OctoberTogether.
The Giants are asking fans to tweet photos wearing their Giants colors:
The @SFGiants have taken a similar path to the #WorldSeries, defeating the @Pirates in the #WildCard game, the @Nationals in the #ALDS and the @Cardinals 4-1 in the #NCLS.

Who’s winning the Twitter battle?
