The 2021 World Series schedule and start times are set for the Atlanta Braves and Houston Astros. All games of the 117th Fall Classic will be nationally televised by Fox and be carried by ESPN Radio.
Game 1 of the World Series is set for Tuesday, with Game 2 the following night. A travel day Thursday will be followed by Games 3 and 4 being played on consecutive days, and if necessary teams will be on the field for a third straight on Halloween.
Should the World Series extend beyond that, Game 6 will be played Tuesday, Nov. 2. A winner-take-all Game 7 would take place Nov. 3.
The Astros eliminated the Boston Red Sox to reach the World Series for a third time in the past five seasons. They will have home-field advantage due to holding a better record than the Braves.
With 106 wins in the regular season, the Dodgers boated the best record of all remaining teams in the playoffs entering play Saturday and thus would have home-field advantage in the World Series. L.A. didn’t enjoy such benefit this postseason outside of hosting the Wild Card Game.
But with the Braves advancing, the Astros have homefield in the Fall Classic for the second time in franchise history. That proved to be a moot point in 2019 as the Washington Nationals won every game at Minute Maid Park to capture the World Series.
