The grounds crew at Dodger Stadium are not only employees - they're also lifelong fans - and they're ecstatic about the World Series games.

"I'm excited. I've been a Dodger fan since I was born. Now it's time to see it happen," said Oscar Del Real, a member of the stadium's grounds crew.

Fellow crewmember Mike Aguirre had his own prediction about which team the Dodgers will face.

"We're going back to New York hopefully. It's going to be unreal. That's what we're waiting for," Aguirre said.

The Dodgers may face off against the New York Yankees or Houston Astros, depending on who wins the American League championship series. The Yankees lead the series 3-2.
