World Series Schedule 2015: Dates, Times & TV Channels

world series schedule 2015

Game One of the World Series is tonight, and the COED team is HYPED. I come from long line of New York sports fandom suffering: my Dad was born and raised and Queens, so Jets green and Mets blue are part of my DNA. However, the Jets are 4-2 and my beloved Mets are 24 hours from playing in their first World Series since I was 7 years old. I’m so excited, I’m dressing up as Jacob deGrom for Halloween. I also want to take this opportunity to give myself some credit: ever since I grew the balls to start wearing my Mets hat to the office (which I bought at Shea it’s final year, by the way) my Mets have been, really, really good. You’re welcome New York. But enough about me and my contribution to the soon-to-be champions, here is everything you need to know about the 2015 World Series: schedule, times, pitching match ups, and stats.

Mets vs. Royals: Game Facts

– There is no team the Royals have faced fewer times than the Mets, while the Mets have only played the White Sox fewer times (seven). Overall, the Royals are 5-4 against the Mets, including a victory in their last meeting on Aug. 4, 2013. But the only Mets player in the starting lineups for both that game and Game 4 of the NLCS was second baseman Daniel Murphy.

– Game 1 of the World Series will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 27 — a special date in the histories of these two franchises. The Mets won their last title on Oct. 27, 1986, defeating the Red Sox in Game 7. Exactly one year earlier, the Royals clinched their most recent title with an 11-0 rout of the Cardinals in Game 7.

– Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy has hit a home run in 6 straight postseason games — an MLB record. He has seven home runs throughout the post season, one short of tying the record set by Barry Bonds, Nelson Cruz, and Carlos Beltran.

– The Royals are the eighth team in history to return to the Fall Classic a season after losing it in Game 7. Of the previous seven, five went on to win the title.

– Since Major League Baseball added the Division Series in 1995, the Mets are the 18th team to advance to the World Series with two or fewer postseason losses. Eleven of the previous 17 went on to win the World Series.

– The only player in the series to have played for both teams is Royals pitcher Chris Young. The 6-foot-10 right-hander spent two seasons with New York (2011 and ’12), going 5-9 with a 3.76 ERA.

– If the World Series goes the distance, Game 7 will be played on Nov. 4, equaling the mark for the latest game ever on the calendar.

– This is first time a World Series didn’t include at least one team that existed in 1903, which is the first year the World Series was played.
