Every Chicago Cubs fan is anxiously awaiting the results of the lottery draw for World Series tickets. For me the tension is greater than any of the NLCS games. I can barely stand it.
After analyzing the past lottery announcements we can say it could have been announced on Sunday and could be as late as Tuesday, October 25.
Tickets for the NLCS were announced the day after the Cubs won the NLDS and it was three days before Game 1. We’re already past the “day after” announcement. It’s highly doubtful they’d wait three days before the game since the World Series starts on Tuesday in Cleveland. Since they won on a Saturday they probably decided to avoid a Sunday announcement and is saving it for some time today, Monday.
