Since baseball on Facebook has been such a huge hit for the Philly crowd, let’s run it back:
Per Mets notes, the opener of their August 16 doubleheader in Philadelphia (4:05 p.m.) will be broadcast exclusively on Facebook. Make your own jokes here.

It looks like the second game of the doubleheader will be on NBC Sports Philadelphia. This is what it says on the Phils’ website:
This will be third Facebook-exclusive game the Phillies have played this season.
These were the numbers from the April 4th game against the Mets, the first to appear on Mark Zuckerberg’s site:
Phillies-Mets baseball game yesterday on Facebook, had 4.3 million views of at least 3 seconds, 1.1 million reactions and over 68,000 comments, Facebook did not release average viewership during the broadcast, which peaked at 85,000 unique viewers per online screen counter.
