As as out-of-market Cincinnati Reds fan, I struggled with renewing my MLB.TV subscription. The Reds are almost certainly going to be at or near the bottom of the National League this year, but it wouldn't feel like summer without following the Reds, so I re-upped.

But if you're a passing fan and watching most games isn't important to you, subscribing to MLB.TV isn't the only option anymore.

How to watch MLB games on Yahoo

This season, Yahoo is streaming one MLB game per day for free on the main page of Yahoo Sports. Yahoo's live stream doesn't offer any DVR controls or the ability to choose which team's announcers you'd like to hear call the game, but free baseball is free baseball.

Yahoo has posted the schedule for April, so you can check to see if your favorite team is included, or if there is a particularly good matchup worth watching. I would expect May's schedule to appear as April draws to a close, hopefully like a lamb.
