KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Major League Baseball announced start times for the World Series late on Thursday afternoon, all which start a little after 7 p.m. local time and can be seen on FOX 4 starting on Tuesday night. In games 1 and 2 the Kansas City Royals will host the winner of the National League Championship Series, which was in progress on Thursday night.
Fans flocked to bars to see if the St. Louis Cardinals or San Francisco Giants would prevail; the Giants entered the game leading the best-of-seven series 3 games to 1.
FOX 4’s Katie Banks went to KC’s Waldo neighborhood where Royals and Cardinals fans watched and waited. They eventually saw the Giants win the series with a dramatic walkoff, three-run home run by Travis Ishikawa, lifting them over the Cardinals 6-3 in game 5 of the NLCS.
Ishikawa became the first Giants' player to send the franchise to the World Series with a walkoff home run since Bobby Thomson did with his famous 'Shot Heard 'Round the World' in 1951. At that time they were the New York Giants and they beat the Brooklyn Dodgers 5-4 at the historic Polo Grounds.
