They’ll Hear You Cheering From Home, Really!


Opening Day is here with a twist...

MLB is launching a new interactive feature where you can cheer, boo, or clap . . . and scoreboard operators at the ballparks will adjust the artificial crowd noise to match what you and the other fans are doing.

So let’s say an Oakland A’s batter hits a homerun, and all of you at home cheer.  Well, with a push of a button, the stadium will erupt with (fake) cheers!

There are no artificial boos.  So if you’re at home are booing, the crowd noise will just get really quiet.

This will be available through the MLB website, the Gameday app, and through social media links.
