Game 1 of the World Series is on Tuesday in Cleveland. It’s drawing even more national attention than usual, because the battle is between the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians — two teams that haven’t won a World Series decades.  Who will cash in on the much hyped event?

Correction (Oct. 26, 2016): A previous version of the graphic accompanying this story misstated the GDP of Cleveland and Chicago.
