'Play Ball' with Tatis Jr. today on Network

June 20th, 2020

MLB Network will have a little bit of everything for baseball fans on Saturday, from postseason clinchers to feature films to "Play Ball" episodes featuring Fernando Tatis Jr. and top Father's Day moments.

Here's a closer look at the full schedule (all times ET):

7 a.m.: 1998 NLCS Game 6 -- Padres vs. Braves

The action begins with the Padres' National League pennant-clinching victory over the Braves in Game 6 of the 1998 NL Championship Series. San Diego starter Sterling Hitchcock outdueled Hall of Famer Tom Glavine, striking out eight Atlanta hitters and allowing only two hits over five scoreless innings. After the Padres finally snapped a scoreless tie with a five-run sixth inning, their bullpen took over and tossed four hitless frames to slam the door.

10 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.: Play Ball

Fernando Tatis Jr. joins this week's edition of "Play Ball," MLB Network's half-hour program hosted by Harold Reynolds and additional MLB Network analysts that features one-on-one baseball demonstrations and interviews.

10:30 a.m.: Play Ball

This special edition of "Play Ball" will focus on some of the best Father's Day and father-son moments from across Major League Baseball.

11 a.m.: MLBN Presents: Only in Hollywood

Award-winning actor Bryan Cranston narrates the story of the 1988 World Series-champion Los Angeles Dodgers, one which featured Kirk Gibson's iconic walk-off home run off future Hall of Famer Dennis Eckersley in the World Series and Mike Scioscia's improbable game-tying home run off Mets ace Dwight Gooden in Game 4 of the NLCS. This special features interviews with Gibson, Hall of Fame manager Tommy Lasorda and star pitcher Orel Hershiser, as well as legendary broadcaster Vin Scully, who delivered the iconic call of Gibson's home run.

12 p.m.: Little Big League

In this "Bleacher Features" family comedy, 12-year-old baseball superfan Billy Heywood takes over control of the Minnesota Twins after his grandfather (and team owner) dies suddenly, bequeathing the team to his grandson. Billy, who knows the team as well as anyone, believes he can get the club moving in the right direction by also stepping in as the new manager.

3 p.m.: 1996 World Series Game 6 -- Braves vs. Yankees

After dropping the first two games of the 1996 World Series, the Yankees responded with four consecutive victories, capped off by a thrilling 3-2 victory in Game 6. New York scored all three of its runs in the third inning off Braves starter Greg Maddux, with Joe Girardi hitting an RBI triple before Derek Jeter and Bernie Williams each chipped in run-scoring singles. The Braves made it interesting late, pushing across a run in the ninth to cut their deficit to one, but John Wetteland ultimately stranded a pair of runners to clinch the Yankees' first title since '78.

6 p.m.: 2015 ALCS Game 6 -- Blue Jays vs. Royals

Looking to avenge their loss in the 2014 World Series, the Royals clinched their second straight pennant thanks to Lorenzo Cain's mad dash around the bases in Game 6 of the '15 ALCS. After José Bautista tied the game with a two-run homer in the top of the eighth, Cain worked a leadoff walk in the bottom half before scoring all the way from first on an Eric Hosmer single. That proved to be the game-winning run, despite Toronto putting a runner on third base with nobody out in the ninth.

8 p.m.: Brewster’s Millions

This "Bleacher Features" film starring Richard Pryor and John Candy centers around a Minor League player who needs to spend $30 million in 30 days in order to inherit $300 million, but there's one catch: He's not allowed to tell anyone about the deal.

10 p.m.: 1981 World Series Game 6 -- Dodgers vs. Yankees

Though the Dodgers and Yankees have squared off in the World Series an MLB-record 11 times, it hasn't happened since this meeting in 1981. Led by five RBIs from outfielder Pedro Guerrero, who finished a double shy of the cycle, Los Angeles cruised to a 9-2 victory in Game 6. That marked just the third series triumph in those 11 meetings for the Dodgers, who capped the '81 Fall Classic with four straight wins after dropping Games 1 and 2 at Yankee Stadium.
