    Watch the plays as they happen. Although watching these games is free, as long as you can do-away with watching the ball move in real-time, the MLB Gameday app provides you all the data you'll need to track the game as it progresses.


  • Before a game, you have several things available to you. You have information on the probable starting pitchers along with game notes and a projected lineup. Gameday isn't available for the game all the time.
  • You can even tell the game is coming up shortly in Gameday when "Warmups" is displayed.
  • New games for Gameday will be added and changed every day at about 11PM EST/EDT. At the end of the season, the date will not change.
  • If you try to download the iPhone app, you'll notice that the Gameday feature for their official app is inaccessible to all users who haven't bought their package.
  • Blacked out games are accessible to any user. It doesn't matter what location you live at, to access these games. (Unless you decided to buy the MLB Gameday TV package or Gameday Audio package, as these packages have blackout restrictions in place.)


  • When given the Watch Online option, be careful not to click the link for the wrong game. Just a few pixels above the link, you'll see the two teams involved in the game that you'll be selecting to watch.
