The games are mostly on Wednesday afternoons, so they are far from prime time but stand as another foray into live sports for the social media company. Facebook partnered with Fox to stream UEFA Champions League games last summer and was the only place to watch 15 college football games last fall. 
Reports put Facebook’s future spending on live sports licensing in the range of a few billion dollars. Facebook will start the baseball season with an April 4 matchup of the Philadelphia Phillies and the New York Mets.
