Facebook reaches deal to show 20 Major League Baseball games live

The social media giant and Major League Baseball are partnering to stream 20 games this season - one a week - to all Facebook users in the US. "I can't tell you we are going to do it". Will they call it Facebook Friday?

The live-stream feeds will come from the local broadcast rightsholders, according to reports.

The other partner would be Twitter, which is also live streaming one out-of-market Major League Baseball game on Friday nights this season including this Friday's game between the Tampa Bay Rays and New York Yankees at the same time at 7:10 p.m. ET. In addition to the convenience of viewing your favorite sports game on mobile devices, there is an element of socialization that makes the move a good choice.
