MLB enters 21st century, makes classic highlights available online

You may have noticed it can be quite difficult to find your favorite MLB highlights on YouTube. Recently, though, it seems the league, which typically does a good job of sharing recent highlights, has uploaded a significant cache of classic highlights to it's website,
The move is a departure from MLB's draconian measures of holding its copyrighted material hostage and includes such Tigers highlights as:
Cecil Fielder's 1993 roof shot at Tiger Stadium (There's also the 1991 home run when Fielder hit it all the way out of Milwaukee's County Stadium)
A much younger and skinnier Miguel Cabrera puts the Florida Marlins ahead in Game 7 of the 2003 NLCS against the Cubs

A two-HR inning from Magglio Ordonez in 2007

Other Tigers moments include stellar defensive plays from Lou Whitaker and Brandon Inge, as well as the day Carlos Guillen hit for the cycle. 
You could spend hours locked away in this vault of treasures. It also includes some of Bo Jackson's finest plays, enough Barry Bonds clips to satisfy even Barry Bonds himself, and even a scuffle or two.
