The Tigers are my frontrunner to represent the World Series in the AL, my White Sox are my long shot in the AL. They represent two of the four teams in the league that have '113' connections. The other two are also in the AL, the Orioles and the Mariners. The O's are my #2 to represent the World Series in the AL behind the Tigers.
Notice their game was rained out April 3, 2017.
Therefore their season began April 4, 2017.
4/4/2017 = 4+4+20+17 = 45 (Illinois)
That was a span of 54-days before the first game played by the Tigers...

Again, when you sum 1 through 63, it totals 2016. The Cubs won in 2016, breaking the 'Curse of the Billy Goat', connected to the Detroit Tigers franchise. This year, the following season, the Tigers open it up against the other team from Chicago...
ALSO, you know how I like the Nationals in the National League? It has a lot to do with soon to be 33-year-old Max Scherzer. Do you know what his team was before the Nationals? That's right, the Tigers.
113th World Series.... 11x3...
I'LL ADD... if the Tigers aren't to play the Nationals in the World Series, it could also be the Cubs.
