The 2011 Baseball World Series is building up to one of the most exciting finished in years, with the series tied at 3-3, and Game 7 to take place at the St Louis Cardinals Busch stadium Friday night 28th October 2011.

This live stream will be covering all the action at this crucial game.

Event Information:

In Game 6, The Cardinals pulled off one of the greatest come-from-behind wins in Series' history, twice coming back from two-run deficits in the ninth and then in the 10th, both down to their last strike. David Freese tied the game at 7–7 with a two-out, two-strike, two-RBI triple in the bottom of the ninth, but Yadier Molina's drive was caught to send the game into extra innings. The Cardinals again trailed 7–9 in the bottom of the 10th, until Ryan Theriot's RBI groundout followed by Lance Berkman's RBI single brought in Jon Jay with the tying run.

After keeping the game tied in the middle of the 11th, the Cardinals won it with David Freese's solo walk-off home run shot to dead center field. The win means that the World Series will go to a seventh game for the first time since 2002. Of the last 13 Major League teams that won Game 6 at home to force a Game 7 in the postseason, 12 went on to win Game 7.

The Cardinals set two records in their Game 6 win: the first team to come back twice from deficits in both the 9th and 10th innings, and the first team to score in the 8th, 9th, 10th, and 11th innings.

Ohi Day (also spelled Ochi Day, Anniversary of the "No") is celebrated throughout Greece, Cyprus and the Greek communities around the world on October 28 each year, to commemorate Greek Prime Minister Ioannis Metaxas' (in power from August 4, 1936, until January 29, 1941) rejection of the ultimatum made by Italian dictator Benito Mussolini on October 28, 1940.

This ultimatum, which was presented to Metaxas by the Italian ambassador in Greece, Emanuele Grazzi, on October 28, 1940, at dawn (04:00 am), after a party in the German embassy in Athens, demanded that Greece allow Axis forces to enter Greek territory and occupy certain unspecified "strategic locations" or otherwise face war. It was allegedly answered with a single laconic word: όχι or no. In response to Metaxas's refusal, Italian troops stationed in Albania, then an Italian protectorate, attacked the Greek border at 05:30 am. Metaxas's reply marked the beginning of Greece's participation in World War II (see Greco-Italian War and Battle of Greece).

On the morning of October 28 the Greek population took to the streets, irrespective of political affiliation, shouting 'ohi'. From 1942, it was celebrated as Ohi Day. During the war, October 28 was commemorated yearly by Greek communities around the world and in Greece and Cyprus, and after World War II it became a public holiday in Greece and Cyprus. The events of 1940 are commemorated every year with military and student parades. On every anniversary, most public buildings and residences are decorated with Greek flags.
