As the home plate umpire is hours away from yelling ‘Play Ball’ in the 108th edition of the World Series, if the history of the Fall Classic is once again correct, the Detroit Tigers could come away with their first championship since 1984.
In World Series history, three times has a team that won a Game 7 in league championship series faced off against a team coming off a sweep. And if you believe in the baseball gods, the team coming off the Game 7 win swept its opponent in the World Series once as the Boston Red Sox brought out the brooms against the Colorado Rockies in 2007. In both other cases St. Louis had it easy against the Tigers in 2006 and during the 1988 World Series, the Los Angeles Dodgers took out the Oakland A’s in five games.
