New York: If you are a baseball fan out there, then this is a good news for you. Now you will not have to stuck to your television screens or curse those who ask you to do some work just because you may miss a home-run of Major League Baseball (MLB).

The social media giant Facebook has announced a partnership with MLB to live stream 20 regular season games on the network.

The games will air weekly on the MLB Facebook page. "The broadcast will be sourced from a local broadcaster from one of the participating teams, without local blackouts. Future Friday night games for streaming will be announced soon," the officials stated.

It could be recalled that Fb has recently updated its developer policies so that people cannot use the platform just for attention grabbing and flooding people's news feeds with irrelevant content.

The move will explicitly forbid live videos that are "only images" (including animated images) or polls linked to largely inanimate material, stated the Fb.
