The Fall Classic gets underway on Wednesday, Oct. 19, at the home of the National League champions.
Why at the NL park, you ask? Well, because of the ridiculous rule Commissioner Bud Selig instituted several years back allowing the winning league of the midseason All-Star Game to have home-field advantage in the World Series.
As you no doubt remember, the NL dusted the AL 5-1 back on July 12 to win its second straight Midseason Classic and clinch home-field for the Phillies, Braves, Brewers, D-Backs…basically, whichever team is lucky enough to get there from the NL.
Regardless of your thoughts on the home-field advantage rule, here’s the full World Series schedule, for those of you who need to know:
