We have never seen anything like 2020 in sports. Canceled games. Games with no fans. Shortened seasons. Sure, there were some highlights, but they felt different.
The whole year put us in a nostalgic mood. We found ourselves looking back at the good old days when kids could play sports with their friends, parents could coach and watch them, and fans could go to a ballpark or stadium and root for the home team and their favorite players. We appreciate the competition and life lessons sports offer a little bit more now.
As we say goodbye to 2020, we celebrate and honor the past, present and future. These are our best stories of 2020.
