Facebook Will Stream MLB Games This Season
You can now watch MLB live anywhere, via mobile and desktop.
Facebook is getting with the times and will start streaming Major League Baseball games kicking off this season. FB is set to be streaming a total of 20 live games. They also announced their urge to step up their sports live streaming game. One month into the MLB season, fans will now be able to view a game a week on desktop/mobile via the social media platform.

In regards to the new project, Dan Reed, Facebook’s Head of Global Sports Partnerships openly stated, “Baseball games are uniquely engaging community experiences, as the chatter and rituals in the stands are often as meaningful to fans as the action on the diamond… By distributing a live game per week on Facebook, Major League Baseball can re-imagine this social experience on a national scale.”
Give the new feature a try when the Rockies take on The Reds at 7PM EST.
