Cleveland/Boston Thoughts

August 15, 2016

In his brilliant novel, 11/22/63, author Stephen King remarks how baseball once was as it should be, played during the day.

I totally agree and note today on a Monday afternoon, two American League contenders, the Boston Red Sox and Cleveland Indians are meeting in Cleveland.

Ah Monday afternoon, Cleveland vs Boston!

This evokes thoughts of a one game playoff for the American League pennant in 1948 won by the Indians at Boston vs the Red Sox. The game was played on Monday AFTERNOON October 4th.

Cleveland stayed in Boston, split the first two games of the 1948 World Series vs the Braves (then in Boston), before returning there to title in game 6, the last time the Indians accomplished that feat.
