Yearbook, Oct. 22: The Snow Globe Series


Oct. 22, 1997: Fifteen years ago, the World Series was played in a pair of cities that hardly could have been more different, weather-wise. And 15 years ago today, that was made (near-)freezingly apparent, as Game 4 between the Florida Marlins and Cleveland Indians featured a temperature of 38 degrees, a wind chill of 18 and -- why not? -- snow flurries.

It was and still is the coldest Series game ever. And just for clarification, it did not take place in Miami.
