CHICAGO - There were plenty of Cubs fans in Cleveland for the first two games of the World Series, but will Tribe fans be in Chicago to cheer on the team as the series moves to Wrigley Field?
Amid the Cubs fans taking pictures outside Wrigley's iconic marquee Thursday were a few Indians fans who now live in Chicago.
"My parents grew up in Cleveland but spent time in Chicago so the Cubs are my second favorite team, and to see both teams together in the World Series in surreal, but to see them facing off against each other is unimaginable," said Noah Collin, a Shaker Heights native who lives near the ballpark.
Comparatively cheaper tickets drew hoards of Cubs fans to Cleveland. It's less economical for Indians fans to head to Chicago.
Tickets for Friday's game in Chicago are starting at more than $2,000 each for standing room only. Many bars in Wrigleyville near the park are charging covers as high as $250 just to get inside to watch the game on television.
"It's rough, the bars are very quiet when I'm very loud, but it's good for smack talk in the office," said Lyndhurst native Theresa Ianni, who said she is standing by a bet she made with her mom after the Cavs championship that she would move home should the Indians win the World Series.
"I have to," she said.
While none of the Indians fans that Fox 8 met near Wrigley had tickets, all planned to watch the game. Cubs fans were lined up outside the ballpark more than 24 hours in advance, hoping to score last minute tickets Friday morning.
