Catch it while it lasts because the last time these two teams played in a World Series, a guy named Babe Ruth stepped up to the plate.
The Last Night’s Game Team
FIVE THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE 2018 WORLD SERIES
1. During the series, the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers will face off in their home stadiums, which happen to be two of the three oldest stadiums in baseball. Fenway Park was built in 1912 and Dodger Stadium in 1962. WHO YOU CALLING OLD?
2. The Red Sox have the largest payroll in baseball and the Dodgers, who are considered the underdogs, have the third largest payroll. The Dodgers won their last World Series in 1988, when most of their players who taking a paycheck weren’t even born yet. WEALTHY WHIPPERSNAPPERS
3. If you prefer to pick the team you’re cheering for with your stomach, the Fenway frank takes on the Dodgers’ nacho helmet in the battle of the belt. Speaking of stomachs, the Taco Bell promotion that calls for free tacos when a player steals a base in the World Series has already been accomplished. Thanks to a stolen base by Mookie Betts in last night's game, you can pick up your free taco on November 1 between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. (local time). NO MATTER WHAT YOU’LL HAVE HEARTBURN
4. The coaching connections are stronger than a game of six degrees of Kevin Bacon. The Dodgers’ manager Dave Roberts helped the Red Sox break their 86-year world championship drought in 2004 as a player. Not to be outdone, Roberts and Red Sox manager Alex Cora were teammates on the Dodgers. FRIEND VS. FOE
5. Use your social media addiction for a good cause. T-Mobile is doubling their efforts donating $10,000 for each World Series home run and $2 each time the #HR4HR hashtag is used on Twitter. (Retweets count). TWEET FOR GOOD
The necessities. The Red Sox won last night in game one. They also had the best regular season record therefore, they have home field advantage. That means the first two and the last two games of the best-of-seven series will be played at Fenway Park. SCHEDULE
THAT’S NOT ALL FOLKS
