Game Thread 8/19: Mets at Phillies

Little League Classic time!

MLB: New York Mets at Philadelphia Phillies Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Last year, the Little League Classic was interesting, but I didn’t really care all that much because my favorite team wasn’t involved. This year? I can’t get enough of it. Show me every single piece of media with kids and Phillies players! I want it all! (I’ll be posting a roundup of the best social media tomorrow, of course.)

Just in case you don’t know who everyone is from the nicknames: Cesar Hernandez, Rhys Hoskins, Carlos Santana, Wilson Ramos, Asdrubal Cabrera, Nick Williams, Scott Kingery, Odubel Herrera, and the guy using his actual last name on his jersey.

This should be a good one, kids. The Phillies are playing for first place, and in front of a bunch of kids. This is cool baseball.
