With each passing day, it appears less and less likely that we'll be able to witness a Major League Baseball season in 2020. While it does sting that we won't have America's pastime to grace our television screens in the immediate future, we can always look back and watch some of the greatest moments in the game's history.
ESPN gave baseball fans a true gift in re-airing the classic Game 7 of the 2016 World Series between the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians, in which the Cubbies won their first championship since 1908.
Cubs fans saw third baseman Kris Bryant watching the game with his newborn son, Kyler, in their home on Tuesday evening. As if they weren't in their feels enough, they logged onto Twitter to see outfielder Kyle Schwarber send out an emotional tweet while reliving the best moment of his career.
We're sure all Cubs fans were cheering and tearing up while watching this very contest more than three years later. We can't say the same for Indians fans, as their squad came so close, but fell just short of winning the Commissioner's Trophy.
Game 7 was an emotional rollercoaster not just for the fans of both squads, but for diehards of the sport. The Cubs had a 6-3 lead entering the bottom of the eighth inning, but closer Aroldis Chapman surrendered a three-run homer to Cleveland's Rajai Davis, which forced the game into extra innings. The Cubs pulled out the W after RBI singles from catcher Miguel Montero and second baseman Ben Zobrist in the top of the 10th inning.
Kudos to ESPN for airing arguably the greatest World Series game of all time to help bring baseball fans together. Here's to hoping the 2020 season becomes a reality so we can experience more memorable moments like this one.
