This year, the Angels face off against the Indians in the Classic, where Little League World Series participants will get to watch. Historic Bowman Field, which was built in 1926, holds around 5,000 people which will make it quite difficult and expensive for fans trying to get tickets.
The MLB started the event in 2017, when they hosted the Cardinals and Pirates and have done it ever since, except for 2020 of course.
