Batter Up! And Readers Up!

OK, boys, the WORLD SERIES OF READING CONTEST starts today! Check out yesterday's post to see all the rules. We;'re waiting to see who knocks some out of the park!

Cleveland/Chicago--first time for a championship in a long time
And what a time to hold our contest! The World Series often has a lot of drama and this year it has started even before the first pitch has been thrown. That's because the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians are playing each other. The Cubs have not won a World Series since 1908. To put that in perspective, Teddy Roosevelt was president and Henry Ford introduced the first Model T car! The
Cleveland Indians have won a little more recently--their last championship was 1948! To put that into perspective, Harry Truman was president and World War II had been over for only three years. 
People were driving these the last time the Cubs won a World Series!
This World Series promises to be memorable, so let's make this World Series of Reading one to remember! Good luck and send in those reviews.

Love your perspective on the time line! I don't follow baseball, but I know that people are really excited!
