Cubs or Indians fan? Here's where to watch the World Series in the Valley

Baseball fans rejoice! The World Series starts today.

The Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians will clash in their long journeys to another baseball crown.     

The Cubs and Indians have the longest active World Series droughts of any other team in the Major Leagues. Cubs have not won since 1908, and the Indians since 1948.

Actually, if you add in all other professional sports when looking at championship droughts both of these teams are in the top three.

Not so fun fact: So are the Arizona Cardinals (*sad face).

But enough talk about goats, curses, droughts and all that stuff. It's time to play ball. 

Let's get to the important stuff like where fans can go eat, drink, be amongst their home team support and watch some baseball.

If you're unable to make it back home to Wrigley Field or Progressive Field for the series, here are a few places around the Valley you can go to root on the Tribe or Cubbies:

Cleveland Indians

A World Series watch party is scheduled for games one and two (Oct. 25  and 26) at the Goodyear Ballpark, the spring training home of the Indians. 

Admission is free and gates open at 4:30 p.m. with first pitch at 5:07 p.m. No ticket is required.

Fans can cheer on and watch their Indians on the big screen -- but make sure to bring a blanket to enjoy a lawn spot, or choose a seat. 

Concessions will be open and selling beer. 

Fans who attend will also have the opportunity to enter to win an 2017 Indians Fan Experience and other prizes.
