MLB premiers on facebook watch

2018 – Major League Baseball experiments with a new medium as today’s game between the Phillies and Mets is broadcast live exclusively on “Facebook Watch”, a new application recently launched by the social media giant. Reviews are mixed, as viewers complain about the size of the graphics relative to that of most laptop or tablet screens and the invasive nature of streaming comments by users (which can be turned off, although this possibility is not readily apparent to many viewers, it seems). This is clearly an attempt to interest some younger viewers who have tuned out traditional media in watching a live game.

However, Howard will go into rapid decline and his huge contract will prove to be an albatross for the Phils.
