Little League Classic 2018

Little League Classic 2018

MLB.com The Mets and Phillies will play in the second iteration of the MLB Little League Classic at renovated Historic Bowman Field in Williamsport, Pa., on Aug. 19, 2018, the league and the Major League Baseball Players Association announced Friday.

 


When news like this breaks, some fans immediately look to us for answers.

Are we going? Group outing? Should we book hotels now?!?!?

The answer on this one is no.

The Mets told me that the team gets a small allotment of tickets for the clubhouse, and the rest of the seats are usually reserved for the players and families participating in the Little League World Series. Additionally, as the game nears, there may be a lottery for residents of Willamsport and the surrounding area.

But even if it were an option, I don't think it would be right for us to take a huge chunk of seats for our crew.

For the teams who are lucky enough to qualify, the LLWS is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The Little League Classic is all about fostering the connection between youth and professional baseball in this country. So it's only right to let as many kids as possible enjoy this opportunity to see their heroes up close in an intimate setting. 

Both youth baseball and the Little League Classic are for the kids. We get that, and we're 100% behind it. So we'll be cheering on the Mets from our couches for this one.

The time is now to win, and you can’t risk having another manager learning on the fly holding them back. The Mets can’t miss with this hire and Beltran has to be on the high-risk list.
