YES Network – Classic Games and More

With no live games to air, sports networks are looking to fill in timeslots, and often, classic games are the way to go.

YES Network is one of the best places to find classic games and more. Just this coming Saturday (4/25) YES will air a pair of Yankees wins from 2019 and multiple Yankeeography programs, and an episode of History of the Yankees.

Where fans may find some hidden gems is YES Network’s vast Yankeeography library. On the same Saturday, programs on Yankees pitchers  Whitey Ford, Catfish Hunter,
Sparky Lyle, Andy Pettitte, and David Wells will all air.

Regardless of what generation of Yankees teams or players pique your interest, there is plenty of intriguing programming to watch and reminisce.

Baseball – Ken Burns (1994)

Baseball is a monster of a documentary created by renowned documentarian Ken Burns. Simply put, if you consider yourself a baseball fan, this is a must-watch. As its description on PBS’ website reads, “The story of Baseball is the story of America.”

Thankfully, Ken Burns and PBS allowed for Baseball to be streamed for free during these unprecedented times. The 18-hour documentary, coming in 9-“inning” episodes, breaks down the history of the national pastime. This is probably the best way to take care of all that extra free time.

Baseball is also streaming on Amazon Prime Video, including the 10th inning, an additional episode Burns created at the beginning of the last decade.
