Major League Baseball's shortened and compressed 2020 season is about to come to an end. Tonight, marks the start of the World Series, and for the first-time ever, the series will be held at a neutral site: Globe Life Field, the home of the Texas Rangers.

The 2020 World Series features the best two teams in the majors: the Los Angeles Dodgers of the National League and the Tampa Bay Rays of the American League.

While the 2020 World Series is the first Fall Classic to be held at a neutral site, it is not the first World Series to be completely played in the same city, or have all games played at the same stadium.

The last World Series to have all games played at the same stadium was the 1944 World Series between the St. Louis Cardinals and the St. Louis Browns (present-day Baltimore Orioles). Back in 1944, both the Cardinals and Browns shared Sportsman's Park in St. Louis. The Cardinals won the 1944 World Series four games to two.

The 2000 World Series, the "Subway Series" between the Mets and Yankees, was the last World Series to be completely played in one city (New York), with games at each team's home stadium.

The Yankees also stayed in New York for the 1956, 1955, 1953, 1952, 1949, 1947 and 1941 World Series against the Brooklyn Dodgers (Yankees at Yankee Stadium, Dodgers at Ebbets Field). The Yankees also stayed in New York playing the 1951, 1937, 1936 and 1923 World Series against the New York Giants (Yankees at Yankee Stadium, Giants at the Polo Grounds)

The 1921 and 1922 World Series between the Yankees and Giants had all games played at the Polo Grounds, which at that time, was the home stadium for both teams.

Getting back to this year's World Series, all seven games will have a 7pm start time, with ESPN Radio's pregame beginning at 6:30pm on ESPN 960 San Angelo. FOX will have the national telecast for the World Series.
