- The Washington Times - Tuesday, September 3, 2019

Bored at work Wednesday afternoon? Can’t make it to the ballpark? The Washington Nationals’ game against the New York Mets will air exclusively on a YouTube livestream for anyone with an Internet connection to enjoy.

Last year, 25 Major League Baseball games, including a few Nationals games, were shown on Facebook Live instead of MASN or any traditional television outlet. For this season, MLB’s online partner is YouTube, and the Nationals will host the ninth of 13 games only streamed for fans on the video hosting website.

The game will be free to watch at youtube.com/MLB, regardless of whether you own a YouTube account. In last year’s situation, fans needed a Facebook account in order to view the exclusive games.

It is the Nationals’ first YouTube “MLB Game of the Week” in 2019, but it won’t be the only one. Their game against the Atlanta Braves on Sept. 13 is also supposed to be a YouTube exclusive, the Washington Post reported.

MASN Nationals analyst F.P. Santangelo will be joined by MLB Network play-by-play announcer Scott Braun and color commentator Al Leiter on the broadcast.
