MLB to broadcast 30 classic games for Opening Day
By Max Rayman
With Opening Day postponed, MLB is playing 30 classic games tomorrow so fans can get their baseball fix.
Tomorrow would generally be a joyous day as it would be MLB Opening Day. Instead, sports are on hold because of the Coronavirus. To make up for the baseball season being pushed back, MLB has announced they will be playing 30 classic games tomorrow on different channels.
Want to revisit King Felix’s or Mark Buehrle’s perfect games? Now you can. Or are you a fan of thrilling World Series games? Then you can watch the Cardinals come back against the Texas Rangers in game six of the 2011 World Series. Also known to some as the David Freese game. Sorry Ranger fans. Or if you don’t have a favorite team but are a fan of the sport, watch the best player in baseball Mike Trout go 5-5 on the road against the Yankees.
The MLB will also be showing classic home run derbies throughout the day. I assume last year, which is the best derby I’ve ever seen, will be included. From Joc Pederson and Vladimir Guerrero Jr.’s epic showdown to Pete Alonso putting on a show in the finals.
For Nationals fans, this is a chance to rewatch game seven of the 2019 World Series. After all, the team finally brought home a title after years of disappointment and heartbreak. Zack Greinke had a no-hitter through six and was grabbing everything in sight. The team literally couldn’t buy a hit. And as the team had been doing all playoffs, they took it to a different level in the seventh inning, behind Anthony Rendon and Howie Kendricks homers. Patrick Corbin came out of the bullpen to pitch three shutout innings and bridged the gap to Daniel Hudson who recorded the final three outs.
This is the closest we are going to get to watching our teams for a while so enjoy the opportunity.
