National Coffee Day | 10/6/18 | 11:00 a.m.
– 5:00 p.m.*ESPN is celebrating the beginning of the season by having their very own national coffee event!
The event will take place at 11:30 a.f.m., which is around the same time that ESPN’s SportsCenter will air.
The ESPN event will be hosted by Mike Francesa, ESPN’s Senior Associate Producer of Baseball, and will feature a panel discussion on what it’s like to work in MLB, and the struggles of a young player trying to find his niche in an environment where there’s so much noise and uncertainty around baseball.
The panelists include: ESPN’s Kevin Burkhardt, ESPN Insider contributor and former MLB player; former MLB GM Bobby Evans, former MLB vice president and head of baseball operations; current MLB player and current ESPN analyst, Curt Schilling; and former ESPN and MLB personality Mark Schlereth, who will also be on hand to provide a few quotes from former players.
The full panel will be joined by former MLB pitchers Ryan Braun, Josh Beckett, Tim Hudson, Kevin Youkilis, Mike Mussina, Joe Nathan, Mark McGwire, Mark Buehrle, and Josh Hamilton.
This event is free to attend, but tickets are limited, so make sure to register early.
