so can the Cleveland One look at the knit stocking cap David Justice wore in the batting cage Monday left no doubt about the big story at the World Series the weather Temperatures are expected to drop into the 30s tonight for Game 3 It might be even colder with snow the next night conditions so bad that Game 4 coujd be jeopardy Not that anyone is complaining At least not yet But several players wore gloves not the kind made by Rawlings either during offday workouts held on blustery afternoon in the 50s Quite a change from Sunday night when the Marlins took batting prac tice in Tshirts and shorts in 77degree heat before a 61 loss that evened the Series at one win each I grew up in Milwaukee I went to school in South Bend so this is out standing Marlins second baseman Craig Counsell said I cant wait to go out and play in it to be hon est with you To me growing up this is always what the World Series was played in weather like he said Its the World Series I dont care what the weather is going to be like Its not going to be a factor from my stand point Youve got to deal with it If you let it affect you youre Charles Nagy who will start for the Indians against Al Leiter did not appear worried I dont mind it so Nagy said Theres nothing you can do about it You cant change the condi tions Ive pitched in cold weather before but nothing can really prepare you tc go out he said Its going to be Agreed Leiter The biggest prob lem with the cold is the slick feeling on the ball The balls become like cue Marlins manager Jim Leyland saw the foreboding sky heard the grim forecast and sounded concerned Not so much for the way it might aggra vate Bobby Bonillas hamstring or aftect Letters grip though Im more worried about the cold for my mom more than I am the play Leyland said But Im not going to buy her a fur coat today I can tell you Leylands 85yearold mother Veronica plans to attend tonight Wednesday night could see the first World Series game with snow since the 1979 opener in Baltimore between Pittsburgh and the Orioles I found that this kind of weather is kind of a mind over Indians manager Mike Hargrove said If you dont mind it really doesnt But there are adjustments that need to be made Probably the major effect is the grip the pitcher will have on the ball Cold weather tends to dry out your hands and fingers a lot more than warm weather will Hargrove said Hitting a baseball in cold weather is not a lot of he said If you World Series Ganwl Saturday Oct 18 Florida 7 Cleveland 4 Game 2 Sunday Oct 19 Cleveland 6 Florida 1 Series fed 11 Games Florida at Cleveland pm TV NBC dont hit it just right it And in the end its the same for both sides Even though Cleveland and Miami have different climates its been a while since either team felt anything close to whats in the fore cast Baseball is meant to be played in warm weather Our guys like to play in warm Hargrove said
