  • (LOS ANGELES) — The fastballs aren’t the main things hitting triple digits at the World Series.

This Fall Classic will feel like summer.

The Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros will meet on what’s required to be a 100-degree Tuesday at Dodger Stadium, starting conceivably the hottest World Series ever.

An October warm wave slugged Southern California on Monday, with the temperature achieving 104 degrees not long after noon in Chavez Ravine. It was all the while blasting when the Dodgers and Astros appeared at Dodger Stadium for brief late-evening exercises that extended into the early night.

The Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros will meet on what’s relied upon to be a 100-degree Tuesday at Dodger Stadium, starting potentially the hottest World Series ever.

The warmth isn’t probably going to trouble the players much: Both of these warm-climate groups are accustomed to sweating it out throughout the entire summer.

“Cherish it,” said Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner, a Southern California local and the co-MVP of the NL Championship Series. “I’d preferably be playing in the warmth than in the snow, so it’s extraordinary.”

In any case, the players didn’t take the field Monday until the point when the sun was incompletely hindered by the left field grandstands, and they took batting practice after nightfall — when it was as yet a toasty 94 degrees. Comparative warmth is normal Tuesday.

“This climate is constantly lovely,” said Dallas Keuchel, the Astros’ Game 1 starter. “It’s that dry warmth, so it will be more smoking than typical to play. In the meantime, I jump at the chance to sweat. I get a kick out of the chance to get that sweat and ensure I have a firm grasp on the ball. It’s the World Series, so if it’s somewhat more blazing than common, that is fine with me. There’s no place I’d rather be.”

Diversion 1 has an opportunity to be the hottest World Series amusement on record. In 2001, the temperature was around 94 degrees in Phoenix for the Oct. 27 World Series opener between the Arizona Diamondbacks and the New York Yankees. The Chase Field rooftop was left open, and the temperature had dropped to 76 degrees by amusement time.

A few conjectures anticipate that Los Angeles will be more sizzling than 94 degrees for the primary pitch at 8 p.m. EDT on Tuesday — and there’s no rooftop on Dodger Stadium.

“Never would I have expected that toward the finish of October, going into November,” Dodgers focus defender Chris Taylor said. “That is LA for you, however.”

The Dodgers are in the World Series out of the blue since 1988, and the temperature feels fine and dandy to the young men dressed in blue.

“Everything is hot in LA!” Dodgers nearer Kenley Jansen said with a smile. “The Dodgers are hot. Everyone is energized. It’s been a while since Kirk Gibson. Obviously it’s hot today.”
