MLB to stream all minor league games for free on Bally’s casinos app

Major League Baseball owners have cut a deal with a casino giant to provide free broadcasts of all minor league games this season — a bid to lure more viewers to the sport as rampant cord-cutting continues to shrink its audience, The Post has learned.

MLB sold the broadcasts rights to all 120 minor league teams — from the Class A Savannah Sand Gnats to the Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes — to casino operator Bally’s Corp., which will offer the free streams on its Bally Live app, according to two sources.

Last season, fans who wanted to catch a glimpse of rising stars like Yankees shortstop Anthony Volpe or Mets catcher Francisco Alvarez had to pay a $29.99-a-year premium to watch them on MLB’s At Bat Live app.

MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred pitched the deal — for an undisclosed amount – as a way to increase the reach of the minor league broadcasts, according to a presentation shared with MLB owners.

Waterpik has been providing superior showering experiences since 1962 and is the leader in handheld shower heads. Here are just a few of the many benefits of using a Waterpik handheld shower head.

How does this work?

Edit: I downloaded the Bally Sports app but it has 'Watch' options for MLB, NBA and NHL only.

Edit again: it's the Bally Live app.
