Would you like to get MLB.TV for 50 percent off — and contribute to a worthy cause?
The Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association is again offering 50 percent off the online package of out-of-market regular season MLB games for every contribution of $25 or more. With the 2023 MLB.TV now selling for $149.99, that would bring your price to just $75.
Of course, if you include the $25 contribution, the price would be $100 but that’s still a $50 savings over the regular MLB.TV price.
The MLBPAA last year offered the 50 percent discount on MLB TV in March and early April but dropped it in mid-April. However, it’s now available again at the organization’s site here. You can also get 10 percent off products purchased at MLB.com for your $25 donation.
You might want to act fast to take advantage of this offer. The MLBPAA says it’s available while supplies last. The group says members will receive redemption information for the MLB TV discount via e-mail sometime up to 72 hours after signing up. (There will also be just one unique URL per member during the calendar year to avoid sharing with non-members.)
And if you’re a baseball fan, you’ll soon see that the $25 is money well spent. The MLBPAA, which was founded in 1982, raises money for youth baseball programs and former MLB players who are having trouble making ends meet in their retirement years. Former Cleveland Indians (Guardians) slugger Jim Thome is the group’s current president.
“A nonprofit organization, the MLBPAA establishes a place where a player’s drive for excellence and achievement on the field can continue long after they take their last steps off the professional diamond,” the MLBPAA states on its web site.
In addition to the MLB.TV discount, your contribution will entitle you to an official MLBPAA tote bag and other discounts such as lower rates at 24 Hour Fitness, Choice Hotels and several other services.
