Well, another World Series is in the books but not without some history. At no time since the Fall Classic was begun with matinees has a team not won a game at home – EVER! Don’t count on a repeat. Teams wearing white uniforms have such an advantage – especially if the previous series was clinched early. Pitching rotations are front loaded, local crowds are rapid, and the final AB belongs to the home sluggers. Anyway, congrats to the Nats for a remarkable season! To face elimination five times yet hoist the Commissioner’s trophy is one for the ages. Reminds me a bit of 2002 when our Angels emerged from the Wild Card spot to clinch. I had the privilege that year to attend game six and seven – Epic! But more on that later.
