Some Chicago Cubs fans are driving almost 400 miles to see game one of the World Series in Cleveland.

The Beck family of Schaumburg, Illinois, is one group of baseball fans playing hooky today. Tony Gaddini and his two friends are another. Gaddini said said spending $1000 on tickets and 5 hours in the car was a no brainer.

“We’ve been waiting a long time for this so we figured let’s go to Cleveland,” Gaddini said.

Game one of the World Series is Tuesday night at 7:08 P.M. on Fox.
