Game One of the World Series is Tuesday night between the Kansas City Royals and the San Francisco Giants. The Giants are playing in their third World Series in the last five years, and it's the first for the Royals since 1985. Steve Inskeep gets a preview from NPR's Tom Goldman.
The Kansas City Royals are the surprise team in the World Series, which reminded NPR's Brian Naylor of the series he attended 45 years ago, when the Miracle New York Mets upset the favored Baltimore Orioles.
