The 2014 MLB season has come to a temporary halt, giving most of the sport’s players a well-deserved break. However, some of the game’s top stars will be in action tonight, as the league is set to lift the curtain on this year’s edition of the All Star Game just several hours from now. Remember, this is the last ever All Star Game for Derek Jeter of the New York Yankees, so even if you’re not into the All Star Game too much, you might want to tune in just to check him out.
If you want to watch the game, but are unable to get to a TV for whatever reason, keep reading. Here, we’ll show you how you can catch tonight’s action. Fox is carrying the game, and their broadcast begins at 7:30 p.m. ET, so the sooner you read this guide, the quicker you can get yourself set up for tonight.
Major League Baseball’s official mobile app will carry the 2014 MLB All Star game. With this free app, you’ll be able to watch the event on your smartphone or tablet at no cost to you. All you have to do is head over to the Google Play or iOS app store, and grab the app. If you own a microUSB to HDMI cable, you can hook up your mobile device to your TV or laptop by plugging it into your HDMI port, and watch it that way. You can grab a micro USB to HDMI cable at your local Radioshack, Best Buy, or similar store.
The league’s official streaming service will also be carrying the 2014 All Star Game, but there’s no free version of MLB.TV. If you already own a Premium account, you’re all set. If not, you’ll have to shell out $24.99/month, or $79.99/year to get one.
Considering that this year’s All Star Game will be broadcast on Fox, there’s a very real possibility that you’ll be able to watch the game on your mobile device with the network’s Fox Sports Go app. However, this is no guarantee, so keep that in mind. Considering that it wasn’t clear whether MLB.com would be streaming the Home Run Derby (which it ended up doing after all), we have to consider this a real possibility. The same goes for Foxsports.com.
Ditto on this one. Major League Baseball streamed the 2014 Home Run Derby for free on its official Web site. Therefore, it’s possible that the site will also stream tonight’s All Star Game. If we find out for sure one way or another, we’ll update accordingly. We reached out to MLB, and hope to get a response soon.
