It wasn’t hard to catch the capacity crowd at Saturday night’s World Series watch party at Progressive Field cheering again and again.

And with the stadium lights on and warm weather, it felt more like summer than late October.

“I think it’s fantastic. Great for the city. Beautiful night. Couldn’t be better!” Debbie Page fan.

Now, with a commanding 3-1 lead over the Cubs, Tribe fans are asking an important question: would it be more fun to win our first World Series since 1948 at home in Game 6 or just close it out Sunday in Chicago?

“As long as they win, that’s what really matters,” Robert Oriti said. "Obviously we would love for them to win here, but winning the series is winning the series either way.”

“I do want to win it at home,” Mike Hanrahan said, "You know, it would be awesome if they won it in Chicago to rub it in Joe Buck’s face, but win it at home, man. Win it at home.”

Sunday night we’ll all find out if Bill Franklin’s wish will comes true.


“No! We all want to win in Chicago,” Franklin said. "They don’t need to win any more!”
