Take me out to the ball game

Trending Events
⚾️ The World Series and NBA Regular Season Begin 🏀

Take me out to the ball game. The question is, which one? We're entering into a busy season for professional sports, with the NHL, NBA, NFL, and MLB all hosting games this week. The major events of the week are the World Series and NBA regular season tip-off, both of which are taking place on Tuesday. 

Tune in to FOX at 8:08 PM EST Tuesday to watch the Washington Nationals take on the Houston Astros in game one of the World Series, or if you're a basketball fan you've got two great games to choose from. First the defending NBA Champion Toronto Raptors take on the New Orleans Pelicans at 8 PM ET, followed by the battle of LA at 10:30 PM ET on TNT. Kawhi vs. LeBron? Count us in.
