Curses, Miracles and the World Series

Hosted by

The Colorado Rockies won 21 of their last 22 games this year, one of the hottest season-ending streaks in the history of baseball. They've had to wait eight days for tonight's World Series opener against the Boston Red Sox, who were behind Cleveland three games to one before winning the American League championship. The Red Sox were loveable losers for decades before they won the 2004 World Series. The Rockies had never won anything until they became this year's "miracle team." John Thorn is editor of Total Baseball: The Encyclopedia of Major League Baseball.
