The Major League Baseball season is around the corner and with engaging new content this year, Twitter is the place where fans can come to view live video and near-real time highlights, and join the MLB conversation.
Live on Twitter
This season @MLB will be giving fans a unique opportunity to vote for which players’ at-bats they want to watch live on Twitter – every day.
Each morning, @MLB will Tweet out a call for fans to choose which player will be the featured hitter that day. @MLB will then livestream every one of that player’s at-bats on Twitter for fans in the United States. This is scheduled to debut on Opening Day - Thursday, March 28 - and continue throughout the regular season.
In addition, @MLB will broadcast live shows on Twitter around key tentpole events on the Major League Baseball calendar, including the London Series, Home Run Derby, All-Star Game from Cleveland, trade deadline, and the Postseason.
Highlights of every home run
For the first time this year, @MLB will post highlights of each and every home run hit during the season on Twitter, including capturing some of those in a specially-curated nightly video montage.
MLB also will once again make near real-time game video highlights available for fans moments after they happen on the field from @MLB on Twitter, offering additional ways to follow all of the baseball action at home or on the go. Spanish-language highlights also will be available from @LasMayores, MLB’s official Spanish-language account, throughout 2019.
To help fans bring their baseball Tweets to life, special hashtag-triggered emojis for all 30 MLB teams will be back come Opening Day. Fans can join the conversation by Tweeting about their favorite MLB teams with a unique hashtag-triggered emoji all season long. Here are the team hashtags that will add color to your Tweets!
Enjoy Tweeting along with your favorite @MLB teams and players all season long!
