Red Sox fans battling through late World Series games

The World Series has Red Sox fans burning the midnight oil.

"You don't leave in the last ten minutes of a movie, you gotta see it to the end," said Bill Brewer.

As a firefighter Bill Brewer says he can take the long nights.

"Everybody is a little slower, you know you need that extra coffee, but goes with the nature of the beast," said Brewer.

Attorney Tom Enright from Cranston gets up early for those court appearances so the World Series is shaking up his docket.

"Usually I go to bed at ten, so I am not use to this.  Oh ya it's worth it.  The World Series is one of the few things worth staying up past 11 for," said Enright.

"Great games you got an ending on a controversial play, a trip over at 3rd base interference.  Last night ends on a pick play.  That never happens in a World Series," said Bill Sweeney.

The late endings are also impacting baseball's littlest fans like Ron Gaynor of Pawtucket.  He won tickets from the PawSox for game one and two of the series.  He gets his homework and studying done early, but he still has to wake up at 6:30 a.m. for school.

"Ya, it's kind of hard to focus, but I get through it," said Gaynor.

Fans have at least one more late night of World Series baseball, assuming the Red Sox win it all on Wednesday night and avoid a game seven.
