@MLB on Twitter is here through the 2017 season, with one live out-of-market stream every Friday. That schedule continues with tonight's matchup between the @Red Sox and @Orioles in Baltimore, and you can find all the details you need right here to experience Major League Baseball in this way while so many others are tweeting about the same thing.
How can I watch the live stream?
The game will be available for free to logged-in and logged-out Twitter users on mobile phones, tablets, PCs and connected devices via mlb.twitter.com and @MLB. The live streams will be available worldwide, except in select international territories. Each weekly stream will be a simulcast of the home team's TV broadcast.
How do I know if it is blacked out where I am?

If the game is available where you are but you are still having issues accessing the stream, please check and make sure the location services are enabled on your mobile device. You can also tweet support questions to @MLBFanSupport if needed.
Who are the starting pitchers for the Red Sox and Orioles?
Drew Pomeranz (1-0) has had powerful stuff in his first two starts for the Red Sox, but he wasn't efficient enough his last time out. He threw 103 pitches in just 4 1/3 innings, allowing five hits and five runs while walking two and striking out 10.
Dylan Bundy (2-1) will start for Baltimore. He has a 1.86 ERA through three starts, taking his lone loss against Boston on April 11, when he allowed three runs in 6 1/3 innings.
This starts a homestand for Baltimore, which just finished a three-game road swing. The teams split a pair of games at Fenway Park last week.
How many games can I watch on Twitter? And which ones?
This is part of a partnership between MLB Advanced Media and Twitter to provide live streams for out-of-market games for free each Friday during the regular season. Here is the remaining April schedule for @MLB on Twitter, subject to change (all times ET):
April 21: Red Sox at Orioles, 7:05 p.m.
April 28: Reds at Cardinals, 8:15 p.m.
What hashtag should I use for games?
MLBLive plus team nickname (i.e. RedSox or Orioles)
What are some other reasons to watch?
Mookie. Based on the last couple of days, he may be rounding into 2016 form.

Manny Machado, Adam Jones and many others are kind of addicting to watch, but how about the stage itself in this @MLB on Twitter game: Oriole Park at Camden Yards, "The Ballpark That Forever Changed Baseball." Help the O's celebrate the 25th anniversary of the place that paved the way for your average gorgeous retro-traditional ballpark around the Majors. Did you know: all that beautiful Kentucky Bluegrass (newly planted sod from New Jersey) and red-clay dirt is the handiwork of Nicole McFadyen, one of only two female head groundskeepers in MLB (the other is in Minnesota). And her grounds crew, of course. Take a look at this and get inspired for your own spring lawn care:
