MLB Network announced that it will be broadcasting three games from the 1984 World Series throughout the afternoon on Tuesday. With live sports on hiatus due to the novel coronavirus outbreak, the network has resorted to other means of providing entertainment for its audience and historic games have been quite the fan-favorite.

The first game will be shown at noon ET, with Game 1 leading off the triple-header as Jack Morris faces Mark Thurmond in the series opener. Game 4 is slated for 2 p.m. ET, in which Alan Trammell smacks two home runs en route to a World Series MVP award. Finally, at 4 p.m. ET Game 5 will be broadcast, featuring the epic home run by Kirk Gibson off of Goose Gossage to clinch the Commissioner’s Trophy and bring a World Series title back to Detroit for the first time since 1968.

The game will be re-broadcast in order again Tuesday night, beginning with the series opener at 10:30 p.m. ET.

UPDATE

In addition to showing Games 1, 4 and 5 of 1984 World Series tomorrow starting at noon, MLB Network will adjust schedule to show Games 6 and 7 of 1968 World Series starting at 8 p.m. ET. Al Kaline had 3 hits and 4 RBIs in Game 6.
