Orioles and Red Sox to play in Williamsport, Pa. next season

The Orioles are scheduled to play a home game next season in Williamsport, Pa.

Major League Baseball and the Players’ Association announced this afternoon that the Orioles and Red Sox will serve as participants in the fourth iteration of the “MLB Little League Classic” on Sunday, Aug. 23, 2020.

The game will air nationally on ESPN and ESPN Radio at 7 p.m. and count as a home date for the Orioles.

Camden Yards will handle the other 80.

“Participating in next year’s Little League Classic is a tremendous honor for our club,” Orioles executive vice president and general manager Mike Elias said in a statement.

Should make for a good offensive game with straight away CF set at 250'.

D*mn you #2 and #3!

When I saw the headline my first thought was how appropriate is that? Maybe each team can take some pointers from the dazzling 12 years olds who usually play there...

Hey, Williamsport does have a pro team, you know guys.

Good way to honor Mike Mussina's Hall of Fame induction. (the Williamsport airport is actually in his home town of Montoursville)

Maybe they'll install a temporary 80-foot high wall.

And now the Yankees and White Sox will play at the Field of Dreams.

No joke, I wanna know how many home runs the best Little League team in the country could hit off David Hess.
   9. Itchy Row Posted: August 08, 2019 at 06:16 PM (#5869668)
If the Little League team is named "Yankees," Hess could probably pitch into the third inning and give up no more than three home runs.

I have no shame.

I think if the Orioles can get their bullpen straightened out by next August, they should be able to give the LIttle League Red Sox a good game.

J.D. Martinez with a metal bat is kind of terrifying.
