World Series Tickets

I’m writing this post in Public Editor’s Journal, where NY Times readers can read about the inner workings of the paper and comment on issues in journalism.

The NY Times has been covering the World Series with gusto. The NY Yankees are playing the Philadelphia Phillies. The coverage has included pre-game analysis, live online commentary during games, and articles about each game afterward.

That’s pretty much what we expect for an event like this. The World Series is big news. As I have said before, it’s important for a big story to have big coverage — with lots of reporters, photographers and editors assigned — to provide a rich account of what happened. It’s also important that there be a good balance between spot news coverage — providing real-time accounts of events as they happen — and more reflective pieces that draw back from the moment to put things into context and provide perspective.

But I’ve been struck by how much coverage there is online as well as in print. This makes sense; readers who are passionate about baseball want to know everything about it, including updates throughout each game. As I have said before, a big story merits big coverage, which includes being covered in multiple ways for different audiences and at different times of day (or night).

CINCINNATI (AP) — The Chicago Cubs are on the verge of history, leading the Cleveland Indians 5-1 with two outs in the seventh inning of Game 6 of the World Series.

This is the Cubs’ first World Series since 1945 and first at Wrigley Field since Game 6 in 1938 against Detroit. They are trying to win their first championship since 1908.

Cleveland has not won a World Series since 1948. The Indians have been trying for 69 years to win another one at home, after losing Game 7 to the Braves in Atlanta.

They had their chances early against Jake Arrieta, but left a runner at third base in the first and second innings. The Cubs took advantage, scoring twice off Josh Tomlin in the fourth on RBI doubles by Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo.

Bryant hit another double in a three-run fifth that chased Tomlin and made it 5-0.

The World Series is a best-of-seven playoff and one of the major league baseball’s (MLB) two annual championships. The other is the NL Championship Series.

The World Series is played between the champion clubs of the American League (AL) and the National League (NL).

pregame coverage begins at 6 p.m. ET on FOX for Game 6, with first pitch scheduled for 8:07 p.m. ET.

The World Series has been a sports spectacle since 1903 and will celebrate its 111th incarnation this fall when the American League champion squares off against its National League counterpart in an effort to claim baseball supremacy.

It’s not just baseball fans who will have their eyes on the Fall Classic, either, as millions of casual sports fans turn their attention to America’s pastime during October and early November.

For the fourth straight year, the Red Sox and Cardinals will meet in October. And for the third straight year, they’ll meet in the World Series.

The Red Sox advanced to their second straight Fall Classic with a 3-1 win over the Detroit Tigers on Saturday night, thanks to some early bullpen brilliance by John Lackey and a late offensive push that was highlighted by David Ortiz’s two-run double.

The Cardinals are also back in the World Series for the second year in a row after pulling off one of the biggest comebacks in postseason history against the Los Angeles Dodgers, winning Game 6 by a 9-0 score on Friday night at Busch Stadium.

CINCINNATI — The Cubs have done it. After 108 years, the Cubs have won their first World Series since 1908.

They accomplished the feat with a Game 7 victory over the Cleveland Indians.

The Cubs won 8-7 in 10 innings to complete their improbable comeback after trailing 3-1 in the series. They became the sixth team in history to win a series after falling behind 3-1.

Catcher David Ross, in the final game of his career, hit a home run in the sixth inning to tie the game at 6 and help force extra innings. He is believed to be the oldest player to homer in his final MLB game.

In extra innings, Ben Zobrist doubled home pinch-runner Albert Almora Jr. with two outs in the 10th inning and Miguel Montero singled home another run for an 8-6 lead before Mike Montgomery got Michael Martinez to ground out for the final out with runners on first and second base.

Zobrist was named World Series MVP after going 10 for 28 with a .357/.419/.643 slash line and two doubles and two RBIs in seven games.

The Cubs are as richly talented as any team that has ever been assembled: Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizz
