The Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians began facing off in the World Series this week. It has been decades since either team won the Fall Classic and the occasion has generated a lot of fan enthusiasm all around the country. So far each team has landed a victory. There have also been some interesting circumstances in terms of the weather.
Both Chicago and Cleveland are cold cities in the fall. Inclement conditions have not been predicted in either city, but the threat of severe weather could affect the games. Game 1 and 2 took place in Cleveland, and Games 3, 4, and if necessary, 5 will be held in Chicago. The chance of rain during Game 2 on Wednesday night caused the game to start an hour earlier. In all of MLB history, the only World Series game ever suspended due to rain was Game 5 during the 2008 Fall Classic between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Philadelphia Phillies.
Chicago is a city renowned for is freezing temperatures and blustery winds, but fortunately, it does not look like these conditions will be an issue for the upcoming games. Temperatures should be warmer than normal and keep from disrupting the game schedule.
