As of now, we don’t know when the MLB season will start: April 7 is the date at the moment, but with no collective bargaining agreement (CBA) in place, it may be pushed back soon.
It has already been pushed back: MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred cancelled the first two series of the season after the two sides negotiating the CBA, owners and players, couldn’t agree before Tuesday’s deadline.
MLB fans, unfortunately, have no choice but to keep waiting for an agreement that may not come soon.
To pass the time and still do something baseball-related, some fans have resorted to watching the 2021 World Series.
It was a hotly contested affair that the Atlanta Braves won in six games against the Houston Astros.
That game had three home runs, Jorge Soler‘s one to put the game at 3-0 was perhaps the most spectacular.
Freddie Freeman Hit MLB’s Last Homer
The last home run MLB fans watched live, however, was hit by one of the Braves’ most iconic players, one who is apparently on the outside looking on Atlanta’s plans: Freddie Freeman.
With the game 6-0 in the top of the seventh and two outs on the board, Freeman got all of a Ryne Stanek breaking ball and sent it to the moon, to give the Braves the 7-0 score with which the game would end.

It was the first World Series title for the Braves since 1995.
Freeman, who hit 31 home runs and scored 120 runs in 2021, wants a six-year, $180 million contract that the Braves have so far refused to give.
They have examined other alternatives and there are rumors he won’t be back.
It doesn’t matter where he goes: he has that last home run for fans to remember an amazing World Series run.
