On Saturday, Fox will air Game 3 of the World Series with a very reasonable 6:57 p.m. starting time in the East. It’s the earliest since 1987 when Game 6 of the World Series between St. Louis and Minnesota started at 3:30 p.m. on ABC. Since then, all games have been played at night.
We have some details on what Fox plans to do during game. I have deleted any reference to an annoying teen pop star who deserves no recognition and the same for the host of American Idol.

Texas native and American Idol Season 1 winner Kelly Clarkson sings the National Anthem prior to Game 3 in Arlington. Martha Plimpton, star of FOX’s hit comedy RAISING HOPE, performs God Bless America during the 7th inning stretch.
Also during the broadcast, FOX Sports and MLB unveil the winners of their joint initiative, THE WORLD SERIES OF COSTUMES. Thousands of fans submitted photos of their children, 12 & under, in Halloween costumes and the three winners appear during the Saturday night’s World Series broadcast. The photo contest was judged by American Idol’s Randy Jackson and a national radio personality. Log onto www.mlb.com/halloween for more information.
And we’re done.
