Everyone who stayed up to watch the Chicago Cubs’ thrilling victory over the Cleveland Indians in Game 7 of the World Series knows that drama lies at the heart of every good story. On December 2, Fox Sports 1 will air a documentary telling the dramatic story behind the Cubs’ postseason run and how the team eventually went on to be crowned World Series champions.

Celebrity Cubs fan Vince Vaughn narrates the documentary, simply titled The 2016 World Series, which officially premieres Tuesday evening at Chicago’s Civic Opera House. The guest list for the exclusive, invite-only event includes Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts, broadcaster Len Kasper, president of business operations Crane Kenney and even team mascot Clark the Cub.

But for those of us who aren’t among Cubs’ A-listers (or who still can’t seem to find FS1 on their TV dial), Blu-ray and DVD versions of The 2016 World Series will be in stores December 6. MLB Network produced the documentary, which includes behind-the-scenes footage of players, highlights of the 2016 season and the dramatic retelling of the team’s seven-game battle against the Indians.
