The first pitch of the 1929 WOrld Series will be thrown at 2 p.m. Eastern Time. On the hill for the Cubs will be Charlie Root (left). Root is the ace of the Cubs staff, going 19-6 this season with a 3.47 ERA. He’s a tobacco chewer and is tough as nails righty. As for the A’s we still have no idea as of press time who will be pitching. OUr best guess is Lefty Grove, but have no support to back that up other than that he’s the undisputed ace of the staff.
The game will be presented live on our Score-o-Matic at 2 p.m. You can also hear the game on your Atwater Kent radios. If you do not already have one, worry not. The Stern and Company store at 712 Market sells them and is open today!
