2009 World Series Set

After Saturday’s rain cancellation, ALCS Game 6 moved to Sunday and the Yankees subsequently moved into the World Series after ending the Angels’ run. They will meet returning champs the Phillies, who took out the Dodgers in the NLCS. The prospect of a “freeway series” out in LA was not to be.

There’s less than 100 miles between Philly and New York, though, so the freeway ride may be longer, but it’s possible for enterprising fans to see all the games in both Yankee Stadium and Citizens Bank Park.
