The end of October is upon us, which means one thing: it’s time for the World Series.
One of the oldest sports traditions is synonymous with Halloween, and even a delayed start to the season couldn’t change that.
The National League Championship Series kicked off Tuesday night with the Phillies taking a 1-0 lead over the Padres. The Yankees and Astros will follow as they kick off the American League Championship Series Wednesday night in Houston.
As these four teams battle it out, let’s take a look at what awaits the winner of each series.
When does the World Series start?
Game 1 of the World Series is scheduled for Friday, October 28.
The first two games of the series are played at the stadium of the team with the better record. In this case, the Fall Classic will kick off at an AL baseball stadium, as the Astros and Yankees post the second- and fifth-best records in baseball, respectively. Meanwhile, the Phillies and Padres played major roles in the National League with 10th and 11th best records, respectively.

What is the average ticket price for the World Series
The MLB playoffs are a sprint to the finish line, and the league is primed for the ticket rush.
However, each team has specific selling strategies, according to their respective MLB websites.
For example, the Astros and Yankees — which arguably have bigger national viewership than their National League counterparts — are selling tickets with zero commission. The Padres, meanwhile, opted to limit their share of postseason tickets to neighboring Southern California counties and areas. Philadelphia has yet to release World Series ticket information, but the team has limited NLCS tickets to four per person, so don’t be surprised if they institute similar limitations.
Season ticket holders are also privileged in all four markets, whether in the form of a pre-sale or simply a guaranteed purchase of their existing seats.
