Mets to face Phillies in Williamsport next August

30 Septembre 2017

The Mets and Phillies will play in the second iteration of the MLB Little League Classic at renovated Historic Bowman Field in Williamsport, Pa., on August 19, 2018, the league and the Players Association announced Friday.

Like in 2017, the intimate crowd of roughly 2,500 next summer will largely be the players, parents and coaches from the 16 teams playing in the Little League World Series.

It's easy for Little Leaguers to bat flip because they saw Yoenis Cespedes do it.

"This year's MLB Little League Classic was one of the most historic, memorable occasions in the 70-plus-year history of the Little League Baseball World Series", he said.

Wells Fargo & Company (WFC) Rating Reiterated by Piper Jaffray Companies
Heading into the stock price potential, Wells Fargo & Company needs to grow just 10.6% to cross its median price target of $60. A rating of less than 2 means buy, "hold" within the 3 range, "sell" within the 4 range, and "strong sell" within the 5 range.

The event was a huge hit with the Little Leaguers as they got to meet some of the game's biggest stars. In addition, the Phillies and Mets will attend the Little League World Series games earlier in the day, continuing the tradition of growth for youth baseball around the world.

The Little Leaguers and their families will be guests at the major league game.

The Phillies are actually a natural selection for this special game, as the franchise has a connection to Williamsport - the Williamsport Crosscutters is the Phillies' Class-A Short Season affiliate, and they play at Historic Bowman Field. "We are pleased to once again have the opportunity to help create these special memories next August", said MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred.

Major League Baseball put more than $1 million into the project, paying for and helping maintain the new grass playing surface. "We are thrilled the Phillies will be part of it", he said.
