MLB Spring Training is in full swing and there are plenty of opportunities for fans to stream the games live. Although streaming is available on other platforms that require a paid subscription package, MLBTV and MLB.com remain the best places to watch your favorite teams play.
All baseball teams have their own dedicated spring training transmitters. Examples include Bally Sports Network to watch Padres games, SNY and YES Network to watch New York Yankees and Mets games. There is also a NESN network and an app to watch all Boston Red Sox games.
“It’s also spring training for the broadcasters. One of the Red Sox boys mispronounced the boy’s name and then carried the wrong stats and twice mentioned ‘his strikeout problem’ while using a strikeout total that was about 40 % was higher than the player’s actual strikeout rate” – dougdirt24
