Have to make sure there is time for more Vin Scully story time.

Adjust your schedules Astros fans. Major League Baseball announced Thursday that the remaining five games of the 2017 World Series will all start at 7:20 p.m. central time.

It will start with game 3 in Houston that was originally scheduled to start 7:09 p.m. CT. The move to change the start time may have been sparked by former Los Angeles Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully had a spirited (kindest word I can find) intro for the ceremonial first pitch in Game 2.

Game 2 started at 7:17 p.m. CT, eight minutes late. But admittedly, the Dodgers seemed to really enjoy it.

The Fox pre-game broadcast will start at 6:30 p.m. CT, except for Game 5 Sunday in which it will start at 7 p.m. CT.
