There is still no baseball on the horizon, but at least some classic games are about to be rebroadcast.
AT&T SportsNet will play the 2013 Pirates wild card game Tuesday at seven p.m.. Michael McKenry and Garrett Jones, two staples to that 2013 team, will be live tweeting during the game.
AT&T SportsNet will also be broadcasting the 2011 regular season opener on Mar. 26, game seven of the 1960 World Series on Mar. 31 and the 2014 season opener on Apr. 2. All of these games will start at 7 p.m.. AT&T SportsNet will also be broadcasting classic Penguins games, too.
If that doesn't scratch your baseball itch, there are other great, free options available.
The first worth mentioning is Ken Burns' classic Baseball documentary miniseries is available to stream for free on PBS.org. The original run, consisting of nine ""innings," covers the history of the game from the mid-1800s through the beginning of the 1990s, and the follow-up 10th inning runs through the 2009 season. If you have not watched this series, it is, unquestionably, fantastic. Baseball is also available to stream on Amazon Prime.
To get your highlight fill, every pitch from those past two years is also available on Baseball Savant. It does take a bit of time to learn to navigate the site, but if you have the patience to learn it, this is a fantastic tool, especially if you want to look up specific events like every double-play the defense turned or every 450+ foot home run the Pirates have hit.
And for the most hopeless of us, some South Korean KBO league are streaming and posting their scrimmages to Youtube. Since Korea is 13 hours ahead of the Eastern time zone, only the night owls are going to be able to catch these games live, but the games are posted as regular videos as well.
These games are being played without a crowd.
Full details are here, but if you want to follow Jung-Ho Kang's old team, the Heroes, they have already begun posting to their channel. There are plenty of other highlights from the MLB on Youtube, too.
If there are other ways, leave a comment and I'll add it to the list.
