As the baseball world waits for live games to return, MLB.com once again offered a dizzying sprint through history to satisfy your craving.

For the second time, MLB.com streamed the most memorable half-innings in modern history back to back, a string of 44 half-innings. All of the half-innings also are available on demand via MLB.TV.

The stream started with Hall of Fame pitcher Bob Gibson closing out his historic 17-strikeout performance in Game 1 of the 1968 World Series and went chronologically through the Braves’ rally over the Cardinals in Game 3 of last year’s National League Division Series. Each of MLB’s 30 clubs was represented with at least one cherished moment from that franchise’s history. Below is a rundown of all 44 half-innings.
