CLEVELAND - We've waited through one regular baseball season, an ALDS series, an ALCS series and a few days..but it is here at last!  The day that Cleveland has been waiting for has finally arrived as the first pitch in the 2016 World Series between our Cleveland Indians and the Chicago Cubs will be thrown tonight at Progressive Field.

The Indians are attempting to make history with their first title in 68 years.

1995 Cleveland World Series team members Kenny Lofton will be throwing out the first pitch and taking the mound for the Tribe will be pitcher Corey Kluber.

Fans are encouraged to #RockRed for all World Series games and those lucky enough to attend Tuesday's game will receive a red #RallyTogether towel. Since standing room only tickets for the game are selling in the $800 range, we're guessing that lots of fans at home will also be wearing red as they tune in right here on Fox 8.
