The World Series is serious. Some might say, world serious. And maybe even more so this year: The Cubs haven't won since 1908, while the Indians haven't taken home a title since 1948.

Still, baseball is fun. It's a game. Being on the world's stage for the first time can be exciting and oh-my-god-we're-here worthy -- particularly for two friendly, up-and-coming stars.

Cleveland ended up winning the game, 6-0, but Lindor and Baez's friendship won everything else. Tune in to Game 2 Wednesday, 7 p.m. ET game time on FOX (6 p.m. ET pregame show on FS1) to see what other antics the two get up to.
