Baseball is still our country's pastime, but these days, watching America's national sport is a whole new ballgame — and not just because of the rule changes in the 2023 MLB season. With games split among cable, streaming and regional sports networks, plus local restrictions and blackouts added into the mix, keeping up with your favorite team can be hit or miss unless you’re willing to shell out for a pricey cable package (and even then, you might get hit with blackouts).
But don't worry, we're stepping up to the plate. Here's every MLB game you can stream this week without paying for cable, your local RSN or MLB Network, including Sunday Night Baseball.
This week is jam-packed with games you can watch without having to find your regional sports network or paying for a pricey baseball package. Starting with Tuesday's Phillies vs. Mets game on TBS and ending with Sunday Night Baseball's Yankees vs. Dodgers game over on ESPN. Plus, you can stream two Friday Night Baseball games over on Apple TV+, and don't forget about MLB Sunday Leadoff on Peacock.
Want to make sure you have your bases covered headed into this week of MLB? Here’s how to watch or stream MLB this weekend without cable.
