The World Series begins tonight! The St. Louis Cardinals meet the Boston Red Sox at Fenway for Game 1 of the Fall Classic, and it's a matchup of the two best teams in baseball.
The Cardinals had the best regular season record in the National League this year, then in the playoffs eliminated the Pittsburgh Pirates in the Divisional round and the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League Championship Series. The Red Sox hit the playoffs with the best record in baseball. Boston dispatched the Tampa Bay Rays in the first round, then sent the Tigers back to Detroit in the ALCS.
The Red Sox-Cardinals matchup will be a duel between two clubs with power lineups and excellent pitching. The Series could go either way, but in the end there has to be a winner — and the editors of SI Kids think they know who that will be!
