Around the League

Game six of the World Series is tonight, and there have been many historic game six moments throughout baseball history.

One thing is for certain: the atmosphere will be wild at Progressive Field as Cleveland hopes to celebrate a second world championship in just a few short months.

No team has won game six and seven of the World Series on the road since the 1979 Pirates, but if any team is capable of achieving such a rare feat it is this extremely talented Cubs team.

Willson Contreras will be behind the plate for Chicago to catch for Jake Arrieta, the same combination which won the Cubs game two of the series.

The last living member of the 1948 Indians which won the World Series, Eddie Robinson, will be at the game tonight to cheer his old team on.

Cubs supporters have been proclaiming that they would do some pretty extreme things in exchange for a World Series title.
