Over the past couple years, the NFL has dabbed into streaming their games on Twitter and Yahoo. But this news of MLB going into Facebook Live is also something really important.
Maybe it’s because my perception of baseball isn’t as high in America as football. But also it’s a way to help fans of baseball get their fix in. I know with so many games and many fans unable to watch as much baseball outside of their market, this is pretty unique. Of course they can still do that on TV but having it right on Facebook is different. People are always on Facebook and having it right there on this platform is a huge deal.
Maybe I am overthinking this but I for sure feel that if I didn’t have MLB.TV, I’d probably tune in even if I don’t care for either teams.
