Phillies, Mets to Play 2nd MLB Little League Classic Game Next August

Phillies, Mets to Play 2nd MLB Little League Classic Game Next August”

Although the 2017 Major League Baseball regular season has yet to formally come to a close, the league is already making plans for next season.

"All of us at Major League Baseball are excited to return to Williamsport for the second MLB Little League Classic, which will feature the Phillies and Mets", MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said in the press release.

As a longtime attendee of the LLWS and a lifelong Phillies fan, it's kind of a bummer that there's really no way for me to attend, as the game is pretty much only open to players, coaches, parents and a few other organizations.

The Phillies are actually a natural selection for this special game, as the franchise has a connection to Williamsport - the Williamsport Crosscutters is the Phillies' Class-A Short Season affiliate, and they play at Historic Bowman Field.

"This is a great opportunity for our club to participate in a game that brings so many Little Leaguers and their families together", added Mets chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon. Josh Harrison made an awesome gesture by wearing cleats autographed by Little Leaguers, and the game ended with both teams forming a handshake line just like the old days.

The game, which is played in Williamsport, Pa. after the Little League World Series, will be the second time it has been played. "We are pleased to once again have the opportunity to help create these special memories next August".
