Game 7 of the World Series is tonight and if baseball fans want to know the outcome, they should probably tune in to The Weather Channel. Meteorologist Paul Goodloe is two-for-two predicting World Series games based on one key factor… wind.
Prior to Game 1, Goodloe mentioned the wind coming from the east at Kauffman Stadium, which would give right-handed hitters an advantage at the plate. He predicted both Giants OF Hunter Pence and Royals catcher Salvador Perez would hit home runs. They both did. He also correctly predicted a Giants’ victory.
Before Game 6, Goodloe predicted Royals 3B Mike Moustakas would homer to right field due to Northwest winds, which statistically favor left-hand players in Kauffman Stadium. He also highlighted Royals 1B Eric Hosmer as a potential key player in the game and said the Royals “should win.” Well, Moustakas hit a home run and Hosmer went 2-5 with two RBIs in the Royals’ 10-0 victory.
