The first pitch of World Series games will happen shortly before 8 p.m. ET this season, shortly after Fox's pregame show, which will now begin at 7:30 ET. Sunday games will continue to begin following the conclusion of the network's NFL coverage.
The new first pitch time is approximately 40 minutes earlier than World Series games in past years. In fact, according to MLB's records, this year will mark the first time in more than 30 years that a World Series game will begin before 8 ET, according to MLB.com.
Finally. Maybe one day, just for old time's sake, we might even get to see a weekend World Series day game.
