The 111th World Series is set. The Kansas City Royals clinched the American League Championships Series over the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday night, scoring a date with the New York Mets in the Fall Classic. The Mets, who advanced after sweeping the Chicago Cubs for the National League title on Wednesday, will be looking for their first title since 1986, one year after the Royals last hoisted the Commissioner’s Trophy.

The best-of-seven series begins Tuesday, Oct. 27 at Kauffman Stadium in Missouri, with the Royals enjoying home-field advantage thanks to the American League’s win in July’s All-Star Game. (Coincidentally, Oct. 27 is the anniversary of the last World Series championship for both teams, as pointed out by ESPN Stats & Info.)
