Game 1 of the World Series will be Tuesday in New York or Houston. The Nationals will play the Yankees or Astros. The Astros lead the American League Championship Series 2-1 with Game 4 on Friday night.

Eaton, who played three seasons for the Miami RedHawks, was inducted into the Springfield/Clark County Baseball Hall of Fame in 2014. He’s the seventh person from Clark County to play for a team that reached the World Series, and he’ll be the sixth Clark County native and the first since Dustin Hermanson in 2005 to play in the World Series when he sees action next week.
