Major League Baseball is coming to Facebook Live, as the league and the social network announced a 20-game package that will include one national game each Friday, starting with this Friday’s visit by the Colorado Rockies to the Cincinnati Reds, at 7:10 p.m. ET.

But, wait: What about Twitter’s MLB livestreaming pact? Twitter will still present games, but its slate was shifted to Tuesday nights, AP reported.

According to published reports, all of the games will be livestreamed nationally, using the broadcast feeds from one of the teams, and there will be no blackout restrictions.
