As the Boston Red Sox attempt once more to reverse the 'curse of the
Bambino' by taking on the St Louis Cardinals in baseball's World Series,
BBC Radio Five Live will be there to convey all the excitement back
to listeners at home, with full live commentary on Five Live Sports
The Red Sox haven't won a World Series since 1918, two years before
they sold baseball legend Babe Ruth to arch rivals New York Yankees.
Since then the Sox have endured almost a century of misery, failing
to win the World Series a single time.
This is the first time since 1967 that they have played the St Louis
Cardinals, and on that occasion the Cardinals won.
Up All Night (1.00-5.00am daily) will have live coverage
from the games throughout the series.
Five Live Sports Extra will carry live commentary of the first six
games, with the seventh game, if it goes that far, being on BBC Radio
Simon Brotherton will commentate on each game with
Josh Chetwynd, catcher for Great Britain's team, providing
The first two games are at Boston's ground, Fenway Park, on the nights

Park on 30 and 31 October.
