Plot Synopsis

First played in 1903 as a best-of-nine series, each year since 1905 Major League Baseball has hosted its WORLD SERIES as a best-of-seven championship series between the pennant winners in the American and National Leagues.
The 2017 World Series begins on Tuesday, October 24, 2017 on FOX, marking the 20th year that FOX has exclusive television coverage. This year is the first time since 1970 that the World Series includes two teams that won over 100 games each squaring off -- the Dodgers amassed a 104-win regular season while the Astros won 101. It is the first time since 1988 that the Dodgers have been in the Fall Classic, while the Astros return for the first time since 2005 when they were then in the National League.

Home field advantage goes to the Los Angeles Dodgers in this 2-3-2 format, meaning the first two games are in Los Angeles, followed by Games 3, 4, and 5 (if necessary) in Houston. If necessary, Games 6 and 7 back in Los Angeles. For streaming, all World Series games on FOX will be available to MLB.TV subscribers who are authenticated subscribers to the network through a participating pay TV provider. That means cord-cutters, you will not be able to catch the games. For those just listening, ESPN Radio will cover all World Series games. Supporting World Series content is available via MLB Network,, MLB International and SiriusXM.
