Nothing kicks off the spring and summer months like the return of America's favorite pastime. After a rocky 2020, Major League Baseball (MLB) is back — fans and all. But with reduced capacity at ballparks around the country, and other COVID-19 safety measures still in place, catching games at home may still be many fans' preference. The only problem there? So many of us are cutting the cable cord to save money, especially with the prevalence of convenient, diverse streaming platforms. 

Theoretically, this might make getting your baseball fix a tad difficult. After all, the steep MLB.TV Premium price tag kind of defeats the whole "cutting costs" idea. So, what's a baseball fan to do?

Don't fret — you're not quite out of options yet. Luckily, if you don't want to pay for something like MLB.TV or FuboTV, there are a few other safe, easy methods that allow you to stream professional baseball for free. Our first suggestion? Contact your cellular service provider; some of these companies will offer special — or, better yet, free — options for streaming live content. 

If that's not an option, then we've got all your other bases covered below. So, get ready to take yourself out to the ol' ballgame without leaving your couch — or paying for cable.
