McCovey Cove is one of the most notable features of AT&T Park. Spectators wait in the Bay for home run balls to be launched in their direction and frantically sprint to retrieve the souvenir.

Games 3, Oct. 27, and 4, Oct. 28, will be in Detroit at Comerica Park. The open-air, hitter-friendly park faces south-south east. The park can house 41,255 screaming fans, with dimensions of 345 feet in left field, 330 feet in right and a staggering 420 feet at dead center.

Weather conditions this weekend in Detroit could make for an uncomfortable series. Temperatures in the evening will be in the 40s with the wind chill in the 30s. 
"The weather on Saturday is going to be more favorable for football instead of baseball - hitting a cold baseball is like hitting a rock," Senior Meteorologist Dale Mohler explains. The northerly wind will help hitters trying to win the game for the home team.
