5. The weather will be a factor (for part of the series)
Weather is usually a factor in the World Series, but not usually quite like this. Since the Fall Classic is played in October (and can stretch into November), cold temperatures and hard weather like rain or snow can be an issue. But with Los Angeles in the World Series, baseball is getting the opposite: Game 1 is expected to set a World Series temperature record at around 99°, beating the 94° temperature in Phoenix back in the 2001 World Series. And given that equally hot (and significantly more humid) Houston boasts a retractable roof over Minute Maid Park, harsh weather likely won’t be an issue for the World Series—unless, of course, you can’t take the heat.
