Streaming Guide

“I have no idea where to watch it,” is one of the most common refrains people have when discussing why they don’t watch unaffiliated leagues. I don’t particularly like that refrain, but after a few years of attempting to educate people on the availability of unaffiliated baseball streaming options, I realized I needed to try something different. That’s where the idea for a baseball streaming guide came from. 

Herein you will find a listing for every professional league I know of with a tiny bit of info about the league (I will refer to leagues as being spring, summer, fall, or winter; this is based on the American season cycle) and if they have streaming capabilities where you can find a stream online. Also provided are the cost of the stream/service (in American dollars) and any possible restrictions on using the service. In the cases where a mobile app is available, I have listed that as well (keep in mind this will be marked yes for teams that stream via services like Facebook and YouTube but do not have a specific team mobile app). In some cases, a team/league may be using multiple platforms to stream their games. I try to be as thorough as possible, but as always the possibility exists that The Guide is missing one stream or another.

This is all legal of course, while I know baseball fans will pirate streams I can’t endorse that myself. Every stream I list in this article is from a league, television station, or some other organization that is directly affiliated with the league/s they are streaming. The guide is also quite malleable and will be updated regularly so maybe bookmark this page and return to it as needed.*

*This is now an actual page on the site, not just a post, so bookmark if you want but it can always be found at the top of the site.

One final disclaimer, affiliated streams aren’t listed here. Everyone knows that for affiliated leagues either MLB TV or MiLB TV have you covered. They do a good enough job of marketing themselves that I don’t see the need to focus on them here. The focus of this article is unaffiliated leagues only.
