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.
