Tonight, the Chicago Cubs will host their first World Series game since 1945.

The series between the Cubs and Indians is tied at 1-1. The 102-year-old ballpark is the second oldest stadium in the MLB.

If the Cubs want to celebrate their first World Series win since 1908 in their home city of Chicago, they'll need to win three straight games. Games 6 and 7 (if the series goes that long) will be in Cleveland.

The rain should hold off on Friday night in the Windy City, but mother nature is still planning to play a factor with winds from the south/southwest hitting 15-20 mph.

Kyle Hendricks will start on the mound for the Cubs, against Cleveland's Josh Tomlin. First pitch from Wrigley is at 7 p.m.
