What time does Game 7 of the World Series start?

Wednesday November 2nd, 2016

The decisive Game 7 of the World Series between the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians will take place on Wednesday at Progressive Field.

First pitch is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET.

The Cubs kept their World Series hopes alive with a 9–3 win on Tuesday night after falling behind three games to one in the series. Their wins in Game 5 and Game 6 brought them closer to ending the longest-standing World Series championship drought, which currently stands at 108 years. The Indians have the second-longest drought at 68 years after last winning the Fall Classic in 1948.

One of those droughts will end on Wednesday night.
