"What I tell them is, take this big stage and shrink it to a theater-in-the-round and focus on that," he said.

Garvey also said players should try to block out the "extraneous things" and just focus on their individual roles.

"If you're an infielder, what do I do if the ball is hit to me? If you're on the mound, you're going to throw strikes. If I'm an outfielder, shade one way or another depending on pitches. It's going to be important to work together as a team," he said.

Game One of the World Series kicks off at 5:09 p.m. at Dodger Stadium. It's the first World Series game at Dodger Stadium since 1988.
