On August 26, 2002 — Sixty-three years after the first televised contest, the first video streaming coverage of a major league baseball game takes place on the internet. Approximately 30,000 fans visit MLB.com to see the Yankees defeat the Rangers, 10-3, far less than the 42,000 watching the game at the Bronx ballpark.
