How to get free ahead of baseball's restart

This Thursday (July 23), baseball is back! The MLB is resuming its suspended season and beginning a pandemic version of pro baseball with two games: the New York Yankees (my favorite team) vs. the Washington Nationals at 7pm ET and then the San Francisco Giants vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers at 10pm ET. If you hadn’t heard, games will be played in the teams’ stadiums but with no fans in attendance. (For more on how this unique version of the MLB will look, read this story.)

Well, just in time, T-Mobile is bringing back a popular promotion that I wrote about last year. Today through August 3 (two weeks from now), all T-Mobile users can redeem a free, year-long subscription to, which streams full, live MLB games. If you’re a T-Mobile user like I am, this means a couple of clicks gets you access to hundreds of out-of-market MLB games for free all season. And this year, in addition to an subscription, you can redeem a free year-long subscription to The Athletic and its exclusive sports content, too. All you have to do is sign up through the T-Mobile Tuesdays app using the instructions here. Just make sure you do it by August 3!

    The problem with the free MLB TV is that they blackout all the local games, which is all we are interested in.

      But you should be able to watch local games on TV, no? I live in L.A. so watching my beloved Yankees for free is amazing
