Millions of MLB.TV subscribers have experienced live baseball this way, including players like Astros shortstop Carlos Correa, this season's American League Rookie of the Year Award winner.
"When I was in Double-A and Triple-A this year, I used to watch the Astros' games every day on MLB.TV to see how they were doing," Correa said. "I knew I had a chance to be at the big league level at some point, so I watched the games, and see the pitchers, how they pitched, in order for me to have an idea. TV is different, but I have an idea of how they pitched to our players. Yes, I used a lot of MLB.TV."
