Clearwater, FL (Feb. 2009) - The atmosphere was set for a rematch of the World Series in front of a record crowd of 10,270 at Bright House Field on Saturday afternoon. There was a brisk home-run wind blowing out to left and temperatures in the upper 70’s. It only seems like yesterday (October) when these two teams met last for game number 5 in Philly in which the playing conditions were 30 degrees cooler than Saturday’s sun-basking afternoon.
