Fans excited as Chicago host Game 3 of the World Series

Posted: Updated:
(KWWL) -

The scoreboard inside Wrigley Field is showing the Chicago Cubs in the world series. It hasn't happened in 71 years -- they're usually giving tours right now instead of playing games.

A lot of fans have been waiting decades for this and Cubs Manager Joe Maddon, who hasn't been waiting as long, is still pretty excited.

"It's going to be great," said Maddon. "I know people that have been waiting for this for a very long time are going to savor it, and hopefully on our part we can do something to make it even better."

Kyle Schwarber, the biggest story of the first two games, wasn't medically cleared to play in the outfield.   At most, he'll have one shot to come through tonight in a pinch hitting role.    

KWWL's Mark Woodley is in Chicago. He'll have live reports throughout the day.
