The Fall Classic is finally upon us.

MLB: World Series-Chicago Cubs at Cleveland Indians Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

The first game of the World Series airs tonight on FOX at 8:08pm. It will be the Cubs against the Indians at Progressive Field in Cleveland as Jon Lester faces Corey Kluber. Improbably, Kyle Schwarber is back with Chicago as their DH after missing almost the entire season with a knee injury. All-Star Danny Salazar is back on Cleveland’s pitching staff too despite being out since September 9th.

This should be a terrific pitchers’ duel, so tune in and watch with us.
