The Milwaukee Brewers’ game tomorrow at 1:10 p.m. CT against the Kansas City Royals will be telecast exclusively on Facebook.

Earlier this year, Major League Baseball and the social media network announced an expanded partnership for the 2018 season, highlighted by an agreement to produce and broadcast one game every week to a global audience on Facebook.  The 25-game package of weekly broadcasts is distributed exclusively on Facebook Watch in the United States via the MLB Live show Page.

According to the Brewers, there are no blackout restrictions in the U.S., as the game will be available to every person on Facebook. Fans who do not have a Facebook account may listen to the live radio broadcast (WTMJ is the flagship) on multiple platforms or follow pitch-by-pitch tracking on and MLB At Bat.

Born in Milwaukee but a product of Shorewood High School (go ‘Hounds!) and Northwestern University (go ‘Cats!), Jimmy never knew the schoolboy bliss of cheering for a winning football, basketball or baseball team. So he ditched being a fan in order to cover sports professionally - occasionally objectively, always passionately. He's lived in Chicago, New York and Dallas, but now resides again in his beloved Brew City and is an ardent attacker of the notorious Milwaukee Inferiority Complex.

After interning at print publications like Birds and Blooms (official motto: "America's #1 backyard birding and gardening magazine!"), Sports Illustrated (unofficial motto: "Subscribe and save up to 90% off the cover price!") and The Dallas Morning News (a newspaper!), Jimmy worked for web outlets like, where he was a Packers beat reporter, and FOX Sports Wisconsin, where he managed digital content. He's a proponent and frequent user of em dashes, parenthetical asides, descriptive appositives and, really, anything that makes his sentences longer and more needlessly complex.

Jimmy appreciates references to late '90s Brewers and Bucks players and is the curator of the unofficial John Jaha Hall of Fame. He also enjoys running, biking and soccer, but isn't too annoying about them. He writes about sports - both mainstream and unconventional - and non-sports, including history, music, food, art and even golf (just kidding!), and welcomes reader suggestions for off-the-beaten-path story ideas.
