The Baltimore Orioles and New York Mets will deliver some exciting baseball to the U.S. Military on March 24 with an exhibition game at the Naval Academy.
Some #MLB news: The Orioles will play the Mets in an exhibition game at the Naval Academy on March 24 at 2:05 p.m.— Jake Russell (@_JakeRussell) February 20, 2020
It's the first game in Annapolis between MLB teams since the Nationals and Red Sox faced off on April 1, 2017.
It’s a tradition MLB held for several years, most recently in 2017, when the Washington Nationals and Boston Red Sox played in an exhibition game at the Naval Academy.
The Orioles blocked the Nationals from playing an exhibition game in Annapolis in October 2017. It consequently ended the Naval Academy Baseball Classic for two years, but it’s now coming back.
It’s great to see the tradition brought back, a small gesture to show appreciation for the service members in the Naval Academy.
