MLB Broadcast History

Recommended Posts

On August 26th, 2002 the first video streaming coverage of a major league baseball game took place on the internet. Approximately 30,000 fans visited MLB.com to see the Yankees defeat the Rangers, 10-3. That?s far short of the over 42,000 who saw the game live in Yankee Stadium, but it?s a pretty solid number for the pre-Facebook/Twitter age.

In 1939 on this date the first MLB game was televised. It was the Dodgers vs. Reds game. The article says that there are no real figures available that show how many people had TV sets back then.
