Over the top

Perhaps this metaphysical, age of aquarius, alignment of the planets, stonehengian, druidian, event is what we've been missing all these years to finally win one.

A unique date in the annals of baseball history will be recorded Wednesday, Oct. 27 when for the first time a total lunar eclipse will occur during a World Series game.


This notable Fall Classic owes partly to the fact that from 1903 through 1970, the World Series was only played during the daytime (The World Series was not played in 1904.)

In 1971, night Series games were introduced. But no total lunar eclipse since that time has occurred at just the right time.

We win it during a lunar eclipse, and then after the game comes the Apocalypse.
