In an experiment to see how fans, through social networking, engage with streaming content, you can now watch one MLB.TV Spring Training game in HD per day, free through their Facebook page.
Games started streaming on Facebook two days ago, beginning with the Aâ€™s Indians game. MLB.com informs that they have created a special player that embeds the streaming content within the Facebook interface.
Get in on it while you can. According to MLB.com, the experiment will only be going on during the rest of Spring Training. So, get in on at least 2 weeks of online goodness.
In related news, the same offer of one free Spring Training game streaming in HD per day is also available through the At Bat 11 app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
