Yes, you read that correctly: after a gloriously grueling game, a rain delay and an extra inning, the Chicago Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians in game 7 of the World Series. From Fowler’s lead-off home run in the top of the first to MVP Ben Zobrist’s game-winning RBI, we recap one of the best World Series games in history. Adam Hoge and Andy Masur anchor True Blue Playoff Plus live from the Allstate Showcase Studio with Mark Carman and Kevin Powell chiming in live from Progressive Field in Cleveland. Patti Vasquez joins the celebration and the gang pops some champagne on Michigan Avenue.   Then Nick Digilio and Dave Eanet join the celebration.  It’s the True Blue Playoff Podcast!
