Pinoy Dodger fans spend thousands on World Series Game 7

LOS ANGELES — The bitter end for the Dodger faithful at Chavez Ravine, as game seven of the World Series winded down.The home team crowd went home early without the World Series title.

The grumblings could be heard, while few mustered up some chants.

But many would rather forget the stinging loss.

The Houston Astros beat the Los Angeles Dodgers in game seven of the World Series, 5 to 1.

It took 29 years for the Dodgers to get back on the World Series stage after winning it all in 1988.

Eddie Tagle was there in ’88. And after spending over $4,000  on 3 tickets, the family hoped they could relive the magic.

“It’s very special because they won 104 games, it’s the most in the league, and I thought we were going to win it this year,” he said. “I wanted to take my daughter so she can experience the World Series.”

But Houston, riding on the emotions of their flood-hit city, was able to take a pair of game in enemy territory, including the decisive game seven — giving Houston its first world title in franchise history.

While Dodger Fans are hoping for better luck in 2018, for now baseball is over, and Dodger fever has come to an end.

When game one started it was a hundred degrees, the hottest World Series game ever. As the cold November air kicks in and the disappointing loss settles among Dodger fans, the first World Series game seven in Dodger stadium history may perhaps be the coldest day in Chavez Ravine.
