The City of Angels is now the City of Champions.

The Los Angeles Dodgers finally broke through and ended the franchise's 32-year title drought, winning the World Series in 6 games over the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday.

The Dodgers' title will likely be upstaged by the abject weirdness of the 2020 baseball season. Not only was the season delayed by four months, it featured roughly a third of the total games (60 as opposed to 162), a regional-only schedule played in front of fan-less stadiums, and an expanded postseason. The games themselves featured what could be one-year-only rules including a universal designated hitter, 7-inning games for doubleheaders, and each team starting extra innings with a runner on second base.
