He was the reds broadcaster for 25 years q. I have always thought that the league Winner of the w orld series gets the weekend games the following year. Which would mean that the Oakland a a would play All the weekend games this year. Am i Correct a Mike Cihalski Pleasanton Calif wrong the world series openings Are alternated annually from league to league last year it was the american leagues turn with the series opening in Oakland.
