Facebook To Show MLB Games Live on Friday
For the baseball broadcast, Facebook said it will use a feed from a participating team's local broadcast rightsholder.
"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," Dan Reed, Facebook's head of global sports partnerships, said in a statement.
"By distributing a live game per week on Facebook, Major League Baseball can re-imagine this social experience on a national scale," he said.
Facebook says it has some 182 million daily active users in the United States and Canada.
