Cubs President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein joined 670 The Score before tonight's World Series game three at Wrigley Field. It is the first Fall Classic game at Wrigley Field since 1945, and some fans have already been seen drinking at bars in preparation for the important ball game.

Epstein is worried that some fans might not make it to the game or might get too sick because of their intoxication levels.

"Please pace yourself. The morning drinking might be a little much. We're starting at 7 and probably going until 11," Epstein said. "No one can be a hero during the daylight."

Many Wrigleyville bars are issuing out $100 cover charges to patrons, but it has not seemed to bother many Cubs fans.
