The Catoosa County News - - WOR­SHIP DI­REC­TORY -

Here’s this year’s ab­bre­vi­ated ver­sion.

Bos­ton holds off New York in a tight race in the AL East. Cleve­land dom­i­nates in the AL Cen­tral and Hous­ton will go on to com­fort­ably claim the AL West with the afore­men­tioned Yan­kees and Ana­heim An­gles earn­ing the wild cards.

In the Na­tional League, Wash­ing­ton cruises to the East Di­vi­sion ti­tle, Chicago grabs the Cen­tral crown and Los An­ge­les han­dles its busi­ness in the West with Ari­zona and St. Louis fight­ing off the con­tenders to snag the wild cards.

In the World Se­ries, it’s a re­match 86 years in the mak­ing as the Cubs face the Yan­kees, who run the gaunt­let to earn the berth from the American League.

But the long trip to the Fall Clas­sic will take its toll on the Pin­stripers as the South­siders hoist their se­cond World Se­ries trophy in three sea­sons and get re­venge for the Yan­kees’ sweep in 1932.
