MLB to air Harper walk-off grand slam game to celebrate Opening Day
On what would have been MLB’s Opening Day (sigh) the league will air 30 classic games, that’s one for each team for those keeping track, on Thursday 3/26/2020 instead of the normally scheduled slate of games.
MLB tomorrow will present “Opening Day at Home,” a full slate of 30 games broadcast nationally across various platforms including digital streaming and social media, creating a full-day event on what would have been Opening Day: https://t.co/EGbOv65Iw9 https://t.co/EGbOv65Iw9

“Opening Day at Home” ah fuck, this is real, isn’t it?
The game the league chose for the Phillies is from last year’s campaign, and I’m sure y’all remember this one. The night where Bryce Harper immortalized himself in Philadelphia sending an absolute missile into the upper deck at Citizens Bank Park for a walk-off grand slam.
Plays like this are ones I wish Harry was still around to call. Could you imagine? LOOOONG DRIVE RIGHT FIELD THIS ONE IS DEEP! GRAND SLAM BRYCE HARPER!
All the love to T-Mac, this was still a great call.

All 30 of the games will be streamed (for free) on MLB’s website as well as all of their social media accounts.

With everything going on, it certainly can’t hurt to hop in a time machine back to last summer and relive that night down at the park.
Wash Your Hands.
