Cubs-Indians World Series Game 7: Dexter Fowler hits historic leadoff home run

CLEVELAND -- It took exactly one batter in Game 7 of the Cubs-Indians World Series to see history happen. Dexter Fowler led off the game with a home run to dead center off Indians ace Corey Kluber.

Give it a quick look:

If you don't feel like you've seen that happen before, it's because it never has. This was the first Game 7 in World Series history where a home run led off the game.

Given that this is between the Indians (championship drought since 1948) and Cubs (1908), it had to happen in this one, didn't it?

What a crazy and amazing game this, our baseball, is.
