The MLB season is about to start: live baseball from the United States is available again this year via Apple TV + and Sport1.
Sport1 will enter the MLB season on free TV at a later point in time: on Sunday, May 28, the Los Angeles Angels game with superstar Shohei Ohtani against the Miami Marlins is scheduled live from 11 p.m. After all, a live game is regularly planned on Sunday evening. In total, fans can look forward to 15 live games in the regular season on free TV, plus two World Series games as well as the Home Run Derby on July 10 and the All-Star Game on July 11 at T-Mobile Park in Seattle as further highlights of the season.
MLB only on free TV at the end of May: live baseball initially only for payment on Sport1 + and Apple TV +
Opening Day in Major League Baseball (MLB): Tomorrow, Thursday, at 7 p.m., the duel between the record champions New York Yankees and the San Francisco Giants will be broadcast live on Soprt1+ and Sport1 Extra. Andreas Thies and expert Matthias Ondracek comment. On Apple TV+, this event is not listed under the live broadcasts for the upcoming season. Here’s the regular 1st game day on April 7th with the Friday Night Double Header Chicago Cubs – Texas Rangers and Atlanta Braves – San Diego Padres. The streaming service always stays on the ball on Fridays and always broadcasts two games live. Meanwhile, DAZN is showing all the games of the season.
Unsurprisingly, Ondracek counts the defending champions from Texas among the title favorites, but also a few other teams that have strengthened in a targeted manner. “Despite the departure of star pitcher Justin Verlander, the ‘team to beat’ are the Houston Astros. In the American League, the competition with the Yankees and the ‘young guns’ of the Blue Jays comes mainly from the east,” says the former baseball player, who has also spotted some ambitious teams in the National League:
“Last year’s semi-finalist San Diego Padres is once again causing a sensation with the signing of shortstop Xander Bogaerts. Along with Manny Machado and Juan Soto, the former underdog has one of the most spectacular offensive lines in the league. While the former Croesus Los Angeles Dodgers may only dance in the second row this time around, the Phillies, the Braves and the Mets have also all geared up for the big title assault in the East.”
