Red Sox, Orioles to meet in 2020 MLB Little League Classic
The matchup between AL East foes is scheduled for Aug. 23 and will serve as a home game for the Orioles.
Orioles manager Brandon Hyde says, “We’re looking forward to it. I’ve never been there. To play on Sunday night baseball in that kind of environment is going to be a really cool experience.”
Major League Baseball and the players’ union launched the Little League Classic in 2017. The games are played at the home of the Phillies’ Class A team in the New York-Penn League.
Red Sox president and CEO Sam Kennedy says, “We are thrilled to participate in next seasons Little League Classic that directly connects Major League Players with Little Leaguers.”
Member of the Red Sox and Orioles will attend Little League Baseball World Series games earlier in the day before meeting.
