MLB Partners With Facebook To Live-Stream Games

Facebook and the MLB announced a new partnership today that will see 20 regular season baseball games live-streamed on Facebook this season, according to TechCrunch.

Plans to play at London's Olympic Stadium did not come to fruition in time for this season or next but the league would like to add Europe to Japan, Mexico, Puerto Rico and Australia as overseas venues for games. The deal is not exclusive, so Facebook will piggyback local broadcasts of the games.
