Watch Memorial Day classics, WBC run on MLB Network

May 24th, 2020

This Memorial Day will be very different from Memorial Days past, but it doesn't make it any less significant, and any less a day to reflect on the heroes in our country's history. It's also the traditional start to summer, a domain owned in the sports world by America's pastime. Check out some classic Memorial Day games, as well as Team USA in the World Baseball Classic on MLB Network. Here's the full programming schedule.

8 a.m. and 10:30 p.m. ET -- Yankees at Angels on May 28, 2012
This one was shaping up to be a slugfest from the very beginning, with the Yankees scoring three in the top of the first and the Angels scoring four in the bottom half of the frame. New York tied the game on a Curtis Granderson solo homer in the second, and entering the bottom of the ninth, it was an 8-8 game. Mike Trout and Mark Trumbo were having big games for the Halos, with Trout going 2-for-5 with a homer and Trumbo due up after starting out 2-for-4 with a double and a triple. It was Trumbo who put this one in the books with a walk-off home run off Corey Wade, finishing a single short of the cycle.

11 a.m. ET -- 2017 World Baseball Classic, Round 2: USA defeats Dominican Republic
It was the most iconic catch of the World Baseball Classic -- Adam Jones becoming Captain America by robbing Orioles teammate Manny Machado of a home run, leaping against the center-field wall at Petco Park to preserve a 4-2 USA lead. The Americans went on to win the showdown, 6-3, en route to their first Classic title. Relive the incredible game in its entirety, including the moment that will be remembered most from USA's championship run.

2 p.m. ET -- Mets at Dodgers on May 27, 2019
This one was primed to be a pitchers' duel of epic proportions with Jacob deGrom and Clayton Kershaw each starting. But it turned on a six-run sixth inning for the Dodgers, when deGrom was out of the game after a strong five innings over which he yielded two runs. In the sixth, Chris Taylor launched a solo home run off Mets reliever Tyler Bashlor, and three batters later, Enrique Hernández smashed a three-run shot off Daniel Zamora. Kershaw was good, too, giving up three runs over six innings before giving way to Los Angeles' bullpen. Cody Bellinger also homered for the Dodgers, in the third inning off deGrom. J.D. Davis and Adeiny Hechavarría went deep for New York.

5 p.m. ET -- 2017 World Baseball Classic final: USA defeats Puerto Rico
Watch the United States team blank Puerto Rico at Dodger Stadium, 8-0, behind a strong start from Marcus Stroman and plenty of run support thanks to a two-run homer by Ian Kinsler, an two-run single by Brandon Crawford, a pair of RBI singles by Andrew McCutchen, and RBI singles from Christian Yelich and Giancarlo Stanton. The victory clinched USA's first Classic championship.

8 p.m. ET -- Bleacher Features: "A League of Their Own"
Watch this classic film depicting the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League in the mid-1940s, starring Geena Davis as Dottie Hinson, a star catcher, and Tom Hanks as Jimmy Dugan, a Hall of Fame slugger who hit more than 500 home runs and is now managing Hinson and the Rockford Peaches. Madonna and Rosie O'Donnell also star as two teammates of Hinson and her sister, Kit Keller (Lori Petty). The film was directed by Penny Marshall.
