The Pirates and Cardinals will play in “The Little League Classic” on August 20

Major League Baseball and the MLBPA just announced that the Pittsburgh Pirates and the St. Louis Cardinals will play a special regular season game during the 2017 Little League World Series on Sunday, August 2. It will be called “The Little League Classic” and will be played in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. The Pirates will be the home team.

The game, which takes place during the Little League World Series, will air nationally on ESPN at 7pm that night. ESPN, of course, broadcasts the Little League World Series. This is what they call “synergy.”

No MLB public tickets for Pirates-Cardinals game at Bowman

Cool stuff.

While two Major League Baseball teams will be playing at Bowman Field on Sunday, Aug. 20, in what will be the first regular season MLB game in history at the longtime stadium, local fans don’t appear to be attending.

The Williamsport Crosscutters, who play their home games at Bowman Field, announced that Major League Baseball said no public tickets will be available for the MLB Little League Classic and that those in attendance will be Little League players and their families.

The game is scheduled to be broadcast on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball and will include announcers Dan Shulman, Jessica Mendoza, Aaron Boone and Tim Kurkjian.

Both Pirates and Cardinals players are scheduled to attend the Little League games during the day “as a unified demonstration of their passion and commitment to helping grow the game at the youth level,” according to a statement by the MLBPA.

The game will be in conjunction with the Little League World Series, which runs Aug. 17-27 in South Williamsport at Lamade and Volunteer Stadiums.
