The Rockies-Reds matchup is the first of 20 games which Major League Baseball will live stream on Facebook. "Whether it's 2019 or shortly thereafter that we play in Europe". Facebook is also expected to announce a deal to show professional video game contests.

The NHL has also visited London as well as ice hockey-loving European countries such as Finland, Sweden and Germany. "And we will continue to purse that agenda with Tony over the course of the season".

"We reviewed with the owners today injury data from the WBC". A game streamed each Friday night for the remainder of the season will be accessible to everyone on Facebook in the U.S. According to TechCrunch, the broadcast will be sourced from a local broadcaster from one of the participating teams, without local blackouts.

Major League Baseball is coming to Facebook.

NEW YORK (AP) - Baseball fans can like their team's games with a click starting Friday. The partners will stream games every Friday at 7.10 pm, Eastern Time.

- Colorado owner Dick Monfort replaced San Diego's Ron Fowler as chairman of the labor policy committee.

"He was a great guy, everyone loved him", father Richard Garrity Sr. told the Tribune. Francona, who had been assistant director of player development, is a son of Cleveland manager Terry Francona.

Terms weren't disclosed, but Facebook brought enough firepower to the bargaining table to bounce Twitter from its Friday time slot with Major League Baseball.

To be clear, this isn't watching live games in virtual reality, but rather watching a traditional feed inside a VR environment that is very much immersive compared to, say, the living room.
