The very first man to bat in the World Series had hair so bright red that his teammates called him “Ginger” instead of his given name. That was in 1903, and Clarence “Ginger” Beaumont was held hitless that day by a tall, portly fellow named Cy Young.
No one knows who the first batter of the 2021 World Series will be, but if you win free tickets from MLB to the Fall Classic, what do you care?
Three sweepstakes offer baseball fans a chance to win tickets and other perks this fall.
