If you're following the Brewers' ongoing chase for the playoffs, you'll have to follow them to the internet tomorrow as Wednesday afternoon's road spat against the Detroit Tigers will be exclusively available to watch on YouTube.
The 12:10 p.m. game – originally scheduled for 6:10 p.m., but moved to the afternoon due to the Tigers-Cardinals double-header on Thursday – is a part of the YouTube's MLB Game of the Week Live schedule, streaming baseball games for free on the website throughout the season. Last fall, MLB and YouTube similarly teamed up for the broadcast of a Brewers-Twins bout while two years ago, MLB signed a deal with Facebook to show several baseball games, including two Brewers games, on the social media site.
To find Wednesday's broadcast – which will feature interviews with Brewers manager Craig Counsell and Milwaukee starting pitcher Brandon Woodruff during the game – all you have to do is head over to MLB's YouTube channel on your mobile device, smart TV or laptop around the time of first pitch. The game should be at the top of the channel's page – no subscription to YouTube TV, or even just a general YouTube account, is necessary.
For as poorly this Brewers season has seemingly gone (Christian Yelich, still barely batting over the Mendoza line!), Milwaukee is still just a game and a half out of the final playoff spot with less than a month to play. So there's plenty of reason to tune in and cheer on the Crew on YouTube on Wednesday – and for the rest of the final stretch of this very strange season that's somehow almost already over.
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
