Little League Classic: A Look at Some Potential Games in the Future?
In 2017, Major League Baseball decided to have a game once a year in Williamsport, Pennsylvania where the Little League World Series takes place. They play the Little League Classic game at the historic William Bowman Field which is not far from the Little League Stadiums.
The Pittsburgh Pirates faced the St. Louis Cardinals in 2017. Pittsburgh won that game 6-3. The Philadelphia Phillies faced the New York Mets in 2018. New York won that game 8-3. On Sunday night, the Chicago Cubs will face the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The MLB announced the other day that in 2020, the Boston Red Sox will face the Baltimore Orioles in the Little League Classic. What are some other potential Little League Classic matchups we could have down the line?
The first one that comes to mind is the Toronto Blue Jays and the New York Yankees. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is an upcoming star in this league. His dad played in the major leagues. Bo Bichette and Cavin Biggio also played for Toronto and their dad’s also played in the big leagues as well.
The Blue Jays will be a very good baseball team next season.
The second one that comes to mind is the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Colorado Rockies. Both of those teams have offensive firepower.
The third one that comes to mind is the Houston Astros and the Oakland Athletics. Houston has been one of the premier teams in baseball over the last few years. The Astros have studs all over the field in George Springer, Carlos Correa, Jose Altuve, Alex Bregman, Yordan Alvarez, and others.
The fourth match up that comes to mind is the Atlanta Braves and the Washington Nationals. As of right now, these are the two best teams in the National League East.
Both teams have young stars on their respective rosters.
The last matchup that comes to mind is the Cleveland Indians and the Minnesota Twins.
Both of these teams will be very good for a long time to come.
Cleveland has made it to the playoffs for the past three seasons and they will probably be back in the playoffs for the fourth consecutive season.
