The snow is melting in Sochi, and the boys of summer are in the sun of Spring Training. So get out your draft guides, track your sleepers, keepers and steals, and register for Yahoo Sports Fantasy Baseball today. This year, we’ve got some exciting news to take your Fantasy game to the next level.
We’re proud to announce that Yahoo Sports is now the official Commissioner Draft and Trade Fantasy Baseball game of MLB.com.
Through the partnership, users will be able to view MLB.com content, and MLB.TV subscribers will get additional features, integrated seamlessly into the Yahoo Sports Fantasy Baseball experience. Users can also follow all of the in-game action using the MLB.TV Player Tracker and re-live top plays and game-changing moments. These highlights will be integrated into Yahoo Sports Fantasy Baseball on the PC, mobile and iPad apps.
But that’s not all we have in store for fantasy fanatics this year…
As you experienced with Fantasy Football, and for the first time in baseball season, we’re offering mobile drafting with our Fantasy Sports app for iOS and Android Smartphones. With the updated Fantasy Sports app, users will also be able to register and conduct both mock and league drafts any time of day.
Yahoo Sports Fantasy Baseball is committed to delivering fans the premium content, research and tools they need — anytime, anywhere, on any device. And because we understand that, for the hardcore fan, knowledge is king, we will continue to bring users the latest news, injury reports and roster moves through Players Notes, now powered by Rotoworld.
