Sunday was the last home game at Wrigley field this year, but baseball wasn't over yet. For Game 5 of the World Series, all the greats were there--Andre Dawson and Ryne Sandberg came to add their magic.
But these are new kids, playing the game old school.
Even with temps in the 40's and the cold wind blowing in, the hits carried in the wind. It was a game the Cubs had to win. There were stunning defensive plays, powerful hitting, and badass pitching. It was one of the best baseball games ever--and a World Series win at Wrigley Field!
Now it's back to Cleveland and Game Six on Tuesday. What can we expect, weather-wise?
Here's what they're saying in Cleveland. Please note the starting time for the game is 7:08 p.m. in Chicago---
CLEVELAND, Ohio – The Indians have a 3–2 lead against the Cubs for the World Series, and are headed back home to Progressive Field for Game 6 Tuesday and (we hope not) Game 7 Wednesday night.
So, what's the weather looking like?
Tuesday, Nov. 1, 8:08 p.m.
Tuesday's game is going to be pretty perfect. Temperatures will stick around the mid 60s, with near zero rain chances, partly cloudy skies, and calm winds around 10 mph.
Talk about perfect World Series weather! Especially with home advantage, and the Indians' lead already, this would be a perfect night to win the World Series.
Temps in the 60's, and a light breeze. It sounds like perfect baseball weather to me, too. Hopefully, the Cubs' momentum will carry them to a Game 7.
Wednesday has a chance of rain, but still temperatures in the mid-60's--warm for this time of year. Yes, it's baseball in November.
Let's play two!!
