MLB, Facebook Set To Begin 25-Game Package Today

MLB and Facebook today will begin the exclusive package of 25 games announced last month, with the Phillies-Mets matchup this afternoon airing domestically only on the popular social media platform. The weekly games, billed as baseball’s first digital-only national broadcasts, will focus on weekday afternoons when social media usage is typically high. The MLB Network-led production will be tailored specifically for Facebook Watch and social-based consumption, including tighter camera angles, larger graphics, and the integration of fan comments and player Instagram handles into the broadcast.
