CAMBRIDGE – The IBL (Intercounty Baseball League) announced this week that all eight member clubs have committed to livestream all home games starting with the 2020 season.
Starting in May 2020, all regular season and postseason games will be streamed live on YouTube for fans to watch their favourite teams on the road.
“As we enter the next 100 years of IBL Baseball, the league felt it was time to immerse itself into the digital age and offer our fans a new way to enjoy our brand of baseball” said Commissioner John Kastner.
The league will also begin releasing weekly highlights and player profiles throughout the 2020 season.
