When is the World Series? What city and stadium is the 2021 World Series?
The former National League rivals Houston Astros and Atlanta Braves meet for Game 1 Tuesday, 26 Oct., with Houston hosting Atlanta at the Minute Maid Park.
The 2021 World Series, like the prior Championship series, is a best-of-7 series with the hosting privileges going to the team with the best regular-season winning percentage, Houston.
The Atlanta Braves advanced past the National League Championship Series, while the Houston Astros secured their spot by winning the American League.
MLB World Series 2021: where and when?
The showdown with the former National League rivals who have played more than 700 times, including five postseason series, gets underway tonight, Tuesday 26 October at the Minute Maid Park.
Houston will play host for two consecutive games at Minute Maid Park, while Atlanta will host up to three consecutive games at Truist Park. Games 6 and 7 will probably be back in Houston.
The Astros and Braves have not faced each other since 2017 because of COVID-19 and all the restrictions that came with it. Since then, it was decided that home-field advantage goes to the league champion team with the better regular-season win-loss record, which is why Houston is hosting this year.
With Framber Valdez starting against former Houston ace, Charlie Morton, and a game that has been overdue for some time now, we are anticipating an exciting World Series. Here are three things to watch for in tonight's game.
