71 years later, Wrigley welcomes World tonight! | MLB.com

Let us hear it for a great lede:

The ivy is beginning to change from green to red, an awesome autumnal attribute the public has rarely, if ever, seen. The corner of Clark and Addison is bustling with activity in the final days of October, some people simply gawking at the old yard that is still blissfully open for business, others lined up on the off chance an unclaimed ticket should rain down from the heavens or, less majestically but still successfully, from the ticket booths. Over at the Harry Caray statue at Sheffield and Waveland, they’ve placed green apples at the legs of the beloved broadcaster, a nod to his long-ago promise that “sure as God made green apples, someday the Cubs are going to be in the World Series.”

Play ball!
