Sure it is a day late but the World Series has begun. The Boston Red Sox are facing the Los Angeles Dodgers. This is the second World Series meeting between these two teams last meeting in 1916 when the Dodgers were in Brooklyn and known as the Robins. The Red Sox won that in Five games. This year the two teams have minority managers Dave Roberts was born in Japan, to an African American father and Japanese mother, and Alex Cora is from Puerto Rico. Interestingly enough both managers played for both teams during their playing days.
The Red Sox are up game so far and it looks like it could be a quick series with the Red Sox winning. It would be unique since they would have both the 1918 and 2018 titles then hopefully it won’t be another 90 some years before they win another one.
