The Latest on the World Series (all times Eastern):

3:45 p.m.

The weather forecast is looking clear in Cleveland for Game 1 of the World Series.

It's supposed to be right around 50 degrees with little chance of rain when the Chicago Cubs play the Indians at Progressive Field on Tuesday night.

As of now, it might be a little more iffy for Game 2 on Wednesday night. Rain is moving into the Midwest and could be around the ballpark at gametime.

Pop star Rachel Platten will sing the national anthem before Game 1 of the World Series between the Cleveland Indians and the Chicago Cubs.

Her hit "Fight Song" has been on the music charts for months.

Country duo Locash will perform the anthem before Game 2 on Wednesday.

2:40 p.m.

Two of Cleveland's stars from the 1990s, Kenny Lofton and Carlos Baerga, will throw out ceremonial first pitches at the World Series.

Lofton, the fleet-footed center fielder, will have the honor before Game 1 as the Indians host the Chicago Cubs. Baerga, a three-time All-Star second baseman, will handle the duties before Game 2.

Indians fans had pushed on social media to have actor Charlie Sheen, who played Ricky "Wild Thing" Vaughn, a hard-throwing pitcher in the iconic movie "Major League," throw out the first pitch. However, the Indians had already decided on Lofton and Baerga, who played together on Cleveland's 1995 World Series team.
