Tue Sep 1518:03World Series at Arlington, first time at one site since 1944
NEW YORK (AP) — The World Series will be played entirely at the Texas Rangers’ new ballpark in Arlington, Texas, and Major League Baseball hopes fans can attend.The Division Series, League Championship Series and World Series all will be part of a bubble designed to minimize exposure to the coronavirus, which limited the regular season to a 60-game schedule for each club and caused 45 postponements.This will be the first World Series played entirely at one site since 1944, when the Cardinals beat the Browns 4-2 at Sportsman’s Park in St. Louis, where both teams shared the field.“The elimination of travel is obviously a positive because because it cuts exposure,” baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred said in an interview with The Associated Press after Tuesday's announcement. “Less interaction outside with the group that you're looking to protect is a huge positive. It’s all about what the risk of interacting with the community is.”While MLB was pleased with the players' res... [More]
