Friday night’s visit by the Texas Rangers to the Toronto Blue Jays marks the last Friday-night livestreamed Major League Baseball game on Twitter before its package shifts to Tuesday nights, and the social network also announced a three-hour MLB program to be livestreamed on Wednesday nights.
Twitter and MLB announced a livestreaming pact last July, but the league reached an agreement with Facebook last week, bringing 20 Friday-night games to Facebook and shifting Twitter’s slate to Tuesday nights.
MLB.com’s Alexa Datt will host the show, which will begin June 14 and feature analysis and trending reports from the MLB.com studios in New York’s Chelsea Market, as well as live look-ins and highlights from Wednesday-night games.
Beat reporters, columnists and analysts from MLB.com will contribute to The Dugout, and the show will also feature appearances by former players and celebrities with baseball ties.
Here are Twitter’s upcoming Tuesday-night MLB livestreamed games (all times ET):
