City by the Bay braces for World Series

SAN FRANCISCO(AP) – San Francisco is hosting its first World Series since 2002 and the signs are everywhere.

Bleacher seats can be had for $600 each while the best seats in the park – directly behind home plate – are fetching $6,000 a piece.

Authorities are also bracing for a crush of watercraft in McCovey Cove, a calm expanse of the bay abutting the right field wall of AT&T Park. Kayak rentals are brisk and more than 1,000 of them are expected to dot the cove each night. The U.S. Coast Guard and police will also regulate the number of bigger boats allowed to anchor in the area.

National Weather Service is forecasting dry skies for the first game Wednesday. There is a 40 percent possibility of rain during the second game on Thursday.
