Celebs talk baseball on Alternate broadcast of YouTube Game of the Week

August 17th, 2022

It was a brand new way to watch the MLB Game of the Week Live on YouTube between the Mariners and Angels.

In addition to the traditional broadcast of Wednesday's Mariners-Angels finale, a special alternate broadcast aired. Hosted by MLB Network’s Lauren Gardner and former MLB outfielder Cameron Maybin, the duo brought in some of the biggest names in sports, gaming, food, fashion and more! Every inning had a new guest that ranged from influencers to icons.

Some of the guests that joined Gardner and Maybin included sports media personality Kenny Mayne, actor Joel McHale, YouTube creators Aaliyah Jay, Katie Feeney and CouRage, and chef Matt Abdoo of Pig Beach BBQ.

If science is more your speed, you probably enjoyed Bill Nye on the broadcast breaking down the action in the third inning. And in the seventh, Houdini of Cheap Fun Breaks hosted a live box break benefiting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital featuring 2022 Topps Definitive Baseball, one of the most prestigious sets Topps has to offer.

Others who appeared throughout the broadcast included Caleb Green, Lacey Jane Brown, Stadium Custom Kicks and Joey Zanaboni.

Here are some highlights from the broadcast:
