In late 2010, MLB created a promising new YouTube channel dubbed "MLB Classics". Unfortunately, it quickly became clear that the channel was nothing more than a conglomeration of previously available MLB games. Rolling in some previously internationally available games involving Japanese born MLB stars, the channel adopted some of the classic fare you would find on MLB.com or iTunes for download.
There the channel sat. While MLB continued to upload classic clips to their main MLB channel, this clips did not find their way to the 'Classics' channel. Still yet, MLB would make their international channels available in the US at the conclusion of the season under the titles of 'MLBGlobal11', etc but didn't bring these games over to their 'Classics' channel. World Series games from 2013 and even the 'Curse' breaking World Series clincher between Cleveland and Chicago would be uploaded to the main 'MLB' YouTube channel.
This channel seemed like a dead channel, a place you could go if you wanted to see the '52 Series clincher or Kerry Wood strike out 20 Astros.
