    Greetings:
    Oh where oh where to begin I guess in 1903 Game 1 that started it all between the Pilgrims vs the Pirates then fast forward to seeing 1909 between Wagner vs Cobb in the final game of that series. Then fast forward still to 1932 to the game whether Ruth called it or not game then 1934 to see Ducky Medwick get showered with bottles & Fruit in game 7 in Detroit. Then fast forward still to see the 1945 series the last time before last year of the Cubs in the Series then head to 1955 see Dem Bums win finally for Flatbush then 1956 game 5 for to see the perfect game then 1960 for game 7 & try to get the ball that Mazeroski hit to beat the Yankees giving Pittsburgh a win then attend all 7 games of the 1968 series that was the last time before playoffs occur then moving to 1971 seeing Clemente star in his final fall classic then watching all the 1975 series then moving forward to all the 1984 series then going on to game 3 before the the delay in the 1989 series then all 4 games of the 1990 & then perhaps game 7 of the 2001 series in Arizona then game 7 of last years. Well that's my take on what games I would like to see.

    I am certain there are stats that show how often a WS goes 5, 6, or 7 games.

    It comes down to weighing the odds for the best outcome (a clincher) and the worst outcome (game doesn't happen). With game 4 you have 100% certainty that the game is played, but the worst odds of clinching. With game 7, those odds are reversed (worst odds of being played, but 100% certainty of a championship).

    I would think (although I am just guessing) that sweeps are rare enough that you could pick game 5 and still have a very good chance of going while increasing your chance of seeing a clincher. So, off the top, I would say game 5.

    Anybody have the time/knowledge to crunch the numbers on this?

    Well, this is tough. My dad, when he was 13yrs old, was lucky enough to see Game 6 Of arguably one of the greatest World Series ever played. 1991. He said when Puckett hit his walkoff Homer in the bottom of the 11th, he finally understood what the announcers meant when they said it was electric, or the noise, deafening. His hair stood on end and it was so loud, it got silent. Of course, Jack Buck had one of the best calls in history with his “and we’ll see you......tomorrow night” call. Dad got goosebumps whenever seeing replays or telling the story.

    He told me he watched game 7 from home the next night, he said even knowing the outcome of both games, he wouldn’t have traded game 6 for game 7 tickets. Even though, again arguably, one of the best pitching performances in World Series history was on display that night. With Jack Morris getting the complete game shutout win after going 10 innings, against a potent Braves Batting Order.

    Not me. Game 7. I’d cross fingers, hold my breath, pray that it went the distance. Because it all comes down to one game, both teams at the end have the chance at being champs, or being eliminated. The entire season, from spring training to all star break, to pennant chase, to playoffs. All the injuries, traveling, slumps, hot streaks, all of it comes down to just one game.

    To me, that’s the most intense, exciting, and anxiety filled thought as a fan. Just. One. Game.

    If you could get tickets to any game of the World Series, which game would you choose?

    I love some of the replies to this.
    @GurlLovesTheHobby - thanks for sharing your story about your dad. Awesome read
    @CardsAndPhils - it’s an interesting spin you put on this to look at the analytics of the series to make a decision.
    @BSEBALLCOMMISH75 - I read your post and wonder how much of this you had stored as knowledge - love the history lesson

    @bakemeister52 - if you do get to Cooperstown, I would go around this time of year. The drive to Cooperstown is awesome with the start of the fall foliage, especially since it’s a good drive from any major points in New York State

    I second the notion that Autumn is a great time to go to Cooperstown. It makes for a beautiful drive and if you go in the middle of the summer, it's just too darn HOT!
