World Series Rangers Giants Baseball

My guess is you were more excited about this day when it was happening a year ago.

No Yankees in this year’s Series, but tonight is a premier pitching matchup for all baseball fans. That is, of course, assuming you can actually watch the World Series.

“It’s going to be kind of hard unless FOX and Cablevision (reach an agreement),” Joe Girardi said. “I did put on Game 6 (of the NLCS) on my computer. I will watch parts of it, I’m sure. It’s kind of hard to be a baseball guy and not watch it. There are times that the games start and you put the kids to bed. But I’ll watch it.”

Girardi and I are in the same boat. I’ll either find a local establishment where I can watch the game, or I’ll follow along online. Either way, it’s Game 1 of the World Series. Yankees or no Yankees, it’s worth seeing.

• For those of you who can watch: Pregame coverage on FOX begins at 7:30 p.m. First pitch is scheduled for 7:57.

• The ceremonial first pitch will be a collective effort from Orlando Cepeda, Monte Irvin, Juan Marichal, Willie Mays, Willie McCovey and Gaylord Perry.

• Major League Baseball just passed along the lineups for both teams.
