With the 2020 MLB season postponed due to the coronavirus, it's going to be a while before we're able to watch any live baseball action.

But that doesn't mean we'll be without baseball entirely on what was supposed to be Opening Day.

On Thursday, MLB will present "Opening Day at Home," a slate of classic games including Game 4 of the 2004 ALCS between the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees. The game, which of course includes Dave Roberts' steal that sparked Boston's historic series comeback, will air at 6 p.m. ET on MLB's Facebook page.

Check out the full slate below:

Roberts' steal is one of the most iconic moments in the history of the Red Sox franchise. The speedy outfielder scored on a Bill Mueller base hit up the middle to tie the game, then David Ortiz walked it off later on in the 12th inning to force a Game 5.

Boston would become the first team to storm back from a 3-0 series deficit in the ALCS, and then go on to sweep the St. Louis Cardinals to win their first World Series title in 86 years.

MLB has not yet announced a new Opening Day date for the 2020 season.
