Facebook is in talks with Major League Baseball to live stream one game per week during the 2017 season, according to Reuters.

Amazon: Thousands of Blu-ray titles for under $10 each.

Both Facebook and Twitter have been aggressive in seeking the rights to sporting events with the latter offering NFL games during the 2016 season.

Reuters writes that Facebook and MLB refused to comment for the article so it’s unclear which games might be streamed on the social media site.

Amazon: New Fire TV stick w/Alexa remote: $39.

MLB, which has publicly acknowledged it wants to attract more young people, could help achieve that objective by offering games on Facebook.

Amazon: Samsung 55-inch 4K TV: $947.

For Facebook, the lure of live sports could keep people on the site longer as well as attract new users who are passionate baseball fans.
