When the Pointer Sisters sang “I’m So Excited” we don’t think they were referencing game 7 of the World Series, but who cares because tonight’s game will be one of the most exciting sporting events you’ll ever see.

Five Things To Know About Game 7 Of The World Series
How’d we get here? This record-breaking MLB (Major League Baseball) World Series has been back and forth the entire time.

1. We haven’t always seen November baseball. When the 9/11 terror attacks delayed the baseball season by a week in 2001, that delay pushed the series into November for the first time ever.
2. TMobile is stepping up to the plate for hurricane relief. They have pledged $20,000 per World Series home run and $2 per #HR4HR tweet.

3. We don’t love to throw stats at you but yet another reason that tonight’s game isn’t the norm. There have only been 38 World Series game 7’s in the last 105 years of baseball.
