MLB is full of incredible statistics and random facts.

Are you ready for the most surprising fact that you will have ready today?

Here it goes:

“The 2013 Red Sox are the ONLY team in the last decade to win a World Series title on home turf,” MLB Network tweeted.

That’s a little hard to believe, to be honest, but it’s true.

Every fan dreams of seeing their team win the World Series.

Things would be even better if that win came in their own stadium, but life isn’t always that generous.

The last time a champion celebrated the final out, or game-winning hit, on home turf was in 2013, when the Boston Red Sox defeated the St. Louis Cardinals.

After that, everyone was crowned along the way: the San Francisco Giants won in Kansas City in 2014, the Kansas City Royals won in New York in 2015, the Chicago Cubs celebrated in Cleveland in 2016, and the Houston Astros won in Los Angeles in 2017.

The Red Sox won in Los Angeles in 2018, the Washington Nationals silenced Houston in 2019, the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Tampa Bay Rays in Texas over the pandemic in 2020, and the Atlanta Braves celebrated in Houston last year. .

The 2022 MLB World Series will be played between the Philadelphia Phillies and the Houston Astros.

For the Phillies to win at Citizens Bank Park, they would have to sweep or take the series 4-1.

If they let the Astros win two or more, the series will be decided at Minute Maid Park, where Houston has a great chance to buck the trend.

However, if the Astros sweep, they’ll pop the champagne on the road.
