Proceeding the first two games of the 2013 World Series, the St. Louis Cardinals will host the Boston Red Sox on home turf for games three and four this weekend.
The series kicked off with game one on Wednesday evening challenging players with Novemberlike temperatures, breezy winds and light rain.
While game two Thursday evening was not the coldest World Series game in history, as game four of the 1997 World Series featuring the Florida Marlins and Cleveland Indians holds that record, it became the third coldest game of all time.
Like game one, game two's weather brought similar tribulations to the teams' pitchers, as temperatures throughout the pre-game warm up were in the high 40s and the first pitch temperature hovered at 49 degrees.
Despite the cold weather in the Northeast, players and fans alike will experience slightly warmer temperatures for games three and four in St. Louis, Mo., this weekend.
Temperatures for the first pitch Saturday night are forecasted to be 55 degrees along with partly cloudy skies.
Winds from the northwest, however, could test players' abilities throughout the game.
As the battle continues for the title of World Champion, fans headed to the ballpark should plan to bring a jacket on Sunday as temperatures will dip into the 40s throughout game four on Sunday.
Game four will bring slightly lower temperatures for the first pitch but temperatures will not near any records.
Slight winds from the southeast will be present in the ballpark but winds will not be strong enough to impede on play.
Game four looks like another rain-free game for the series as forecasts predict clear skies Sunday evening.
