    Very Few Home Teams Lose Game Six Of World Series

    Posted by on October 29th, 2013 · Comments (0)

    There have been 63 “Game Six” contests in baseball history.

    And, the home team has won 40 of those 63 games. For those scoring at home, that’s 64% of the time.

    Further, since 1982, there have been 15 “Game Six” match-ups in the Fall Classic. And, the home team has won 12 of those 15 games. That’s a winning percentage of 80%.

    Sorry Cardinals fans.
