World Series Weather And Cleveland Ohio Heating Repair

While the 2016 World Series is now history, there were some tense moments in the days leading up to the games. These worries were not due to which team might win or lose, but whether or not the weather would play a spoiler role in the game scheduling. The games are required to last for nine innings, but according to an MLB rule enacted following the 2008 Series, it may take as long as three days to play the innings.

When a surprise rain shower halted the game halfway through the second inning, the score was tied at 1 each. The game was resumed on the next day and the Yankees went on to win 9-3.

As is now known, the Cubs won the Series with a Game 7 win in extra innings. The game was delayed at the start of the 10th inning. This was only the 5th time that the 7th game lasted more than 9 innings and firs Game 7 to have a rain delay.

While both Cleveland and Chicago are known for wintry weather blasts, it is not typical to have both host cities subject to weather extremes. Preparing for winter weather is a significant part of the activities during the waning months of the year in both cities. The homeowners in Cleveland who plan ahead know that a call to the HVAC company before the winter weather hits may prevent an emergency situation during the cold weather.
