In honor of the 2020 World Series starting tonight, it's time to look back at the origins of our national pastime with this classic 2004 clip from Late Night with Conan O'Brien, in which the host traveled to Long Island to play some baseball as it existed in 1864.
After getting to know the cosplayers on the field and off, he eventually dons a fantastic mustache, gets into the game, and engages in some hilarious old-timey trash talk
Late Night with Conan O'Brien ran from 1993 until 2009.
People are talking about Conan in our forums. Join the conversation.
Andy Hunsaker has a head full of sitcom gags and nerd-genre lore, and can be followed @AndyHunsaker if you're into that sort of thing.
