Major League Baseball on Thursday announced that its interactive, virtual ballpark will stream its first-ever regular season game on Wednesday, Sept. 20, when the Tampa Bay Rays host the Los Angeles Angels live from Tropicana Field.
Syncing with Gameday 3D for this first test, fans from anywhere in the world logged into the virtual ballpark can watch a three-dimensional representation of the game and interact with each other as it’s being played.
In addition to watching the game up close from previously impossible angles, fans can talk with each other using spatial audio, explore the virtual ballpark to play trivia games and participate in a scavenger hunt.
Fans can also watch the traditional broadcast on the digital videoboards of the virtual ballpark. This experience is available on any internet-connected personal device including computers, tablets and smartphones.
Fans can visit the Ballpark for 6:40 p.m. ET first pitch on Wednesday at MLB.com/virtual-ballpark
