The Major League Baseball season officially kicks off in the U.S. today and the league promises to post more highlights online at Twitter than ever before.
For the first time this year, @MLB will post highlights of each and every home run hit during the season on Twitter, including capturing some of those in a specially-curated nightly video montage.
MLB also will once again make near real-time game video highlights available for fans moments after they happen on the field from @MLB on Twitter, offering additional ways to follow all of the baseball action at home or on the go. Spanish-language highlights also will be available from @LasMayores, MLB’s official Spanish-language account, throughout 2019.
This season @MLB will be giving fans a unique opportunity to vote for which players’ at-bats they want to watch live on Twitter – every day.
Each morning, @MLB will Tweet out a call for fans to choose which player will be the featured hitter that day. @MLB will then livestream every one of that player’s at-bats on Twitter for fans in the United States. This is scheduled to debut on Opening Day – Thursday, March 28 – and continue throughout the regular season.
In addition, @MLB will broadcast live shows on Twitter around key tentpole events on the Major League Baseball calendar, including the London Series, Home Run Derby, All-Star Game from Cleveland, trade deadline, and the Postseason.
