Dodgers and Astros Make World Series History
The 2017 World Series has shaped up to be arguably one of the greatest championship series of all time. Why? Two words.
Hit after hit after hit, the two teams - Houston Astros and Los Angeles Dodgers - have been aiming for the stars as they sent balls flying into the stands during the past 6 games of this year's World Series.
Game 2 started a fire between the two teams that is lighting up the baseball world. The night of the game, which lasted an impressive 11 innings, had a combination of EIGHT home runs between the two teams setting a new record for the most home runs hit in a single World Series game.
The action did not stop there. Game 5 followed suit with a combined total of 6 home runs! There was even one homer hit by Astro's George Springer that flew 448ft, landing high over left field, seeming to explode upon impact.
Game 6 of the Series ended with a Dodgers win, forcing a Game 7 and creating a new World Series record of the most home runs ever hit, 23, breaking the previous record of 21 set by the San Francisco Giants and Anaheim Angels in 2002. AND IT'S NOT OVER YET! Game 7 airs tonight where we expect to see more fireworks coming from both teams.
Apart from the unbelievable number of home runs flying off the bats, this Series has also provided us with another unique record. With all the heat coming off these games, seat prices, much like the balls, have shot through the roof. The average price for a view of the game has hit a whopping $1,795 USD, and that's for the nose bleed seats! So if you're not a high baller, it might be better to watch this game from your living room... unless you have an extra 2k and a pair of binoculars.
