Even if the dates of these eclipses and World Series games had coincided, it would still have been a moot point since these two eclipses were visible only on the other side of the globe, across Asia.
In fact, the date when the final game of the World Series was played has noticeably moved forward in the fall calendar over the years.
By the time those eclipses come, Major League Baseball officials might have slated the World Series for the middle of November, and perhaps it will live up to its name and be played in other parts of the world.

 World Series: Cardinals tame Tigers in five   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)

The Cardinals surely played better over the past week than they did during their 83-win regular season (worst-ever by a champion), but it was impossible for the Tigers not to regret their own performance.
Moments later, Series MVP David Eckstein -- who had had four hits and had driven in the decisive run in Game 4 -- delivered his second RBI of the night with a groundout to give the Cardinals a lead they wouldn't relinquish.
