Will you watch the World Series?

If you’re a baseball fan, we know what you’re doing this week! The 2023 World Series began last night in Arlington, Texas.

Will you watch? If so, who are you rooting for? Leave your team pick in the comments below… if you dare.

If you remember Bazooka Joe comics, bubble gum, and baseball cards, you should read this story by one of our past writers, Kate Doherty, who writes about the World Series bringing back fond memories. It’s a good read.

Will not watch the world. series, as. my son plays both high school varsity football and baseball. His Friday night game (Wilcox. HS, against their rival, Los Gatos game was a better nail biter than any on-tv game. Even though my son’s team lost 24-21, they were still driving forward for three first downs from 58 seconds to 4 seconds, before the game was called.
No World Series, or Super Bowl can match that game.

Nope. I became an Atlanta Braves fan when they moved there from Milwaukee in 1966 (Atlanta is ~2 hours from where I grew up and now live.). Since then baseball season ends for me when they play their last game.

I have lost my wife to Baseball during the season and will be glad when the Series is over . I do not watch, but must listen to the play by play after each game.

Nope gave up on MLB when they moved the All Star Game out of Atlanta and hurt all the small black owned businesses there.

We always watch, even though my husband is a lifelong Braves fan and my team is the Athletics, we live in Arizona now so Diamond Backs all the way.

I am philosophically opposed to any form professional sports. There are more than enough worthless entertainment options available to distract people from the important things in life.

We love the fall classic, even though our team didn’t make it. Last nights game was really good!! Glad to see some smaller market teams in it to win it all!

Watching a replay today as too nervous to watch much of it last night. It was a great win for the Texas Rangers and of course, I want them to go all the way!

I’ve been a Cubs fan since 1968 but they, and MLB, flipped me the bird when they went political. I didn’t walk away from them…they abandoned me. I missed it for a while but no more.

Agreed…And I used to LOVE baseball. I was even a Little League coach for a few years.

I watch NO sports! The best day to go shopping is Super Bowl Sunday, only not in the TV department – ha.

I agree with Sven and Bob that salaries are outrageously enormous. Yet who of us that had the talent or smarts to command such compensation would say, “oh that’s way to much, just reduce that amount by half”! I think most of us would take what the market would offer. I know I would. But, I am a Sportsaholic, so I hold my nose and enjoy.

I do not follow professional sports in protest to the insultingly high salaries paid to the players, management, and owners. When a single player can make more in one game, than an American laborer (me) makes in a lifetime, they don’t deserve my support. The same applies to paid professional college sports.

A baseball player a couple decades ago with the Toronto Blue Jays that I knew quite well explained to me perfectly about his at that time 4 Million dollar salary. “I am one of a handful of people on the planet that can throw a fastball nearly 100 mph, and for strikes. THAT is why I am paid what I am paid.” Anyone else throw a fastball 100 mph during your free time? I can’t. Supply and demand, supply and demand.

Baseball died with the DH.
