MLB to Have 'Snapchat Day' and Allow Players to Post in the Dugout During Games

Baseball is typically the old man wagging his fist at the youngsters.

Not anymore.

On Friday, March 11, the league will host a “Snapchat Day” when players across the league will be permitted to use “SnapBat” selfie sticks—yes, that’s real—and smartphones in the dugout and bullpen.

This comes on the heels of a multiyear partnership agreement between the MLB and Snapchat.

Per Forbes.com contributor Maury Brown, Snapchat will cover Opening Day, the All-Star Game, playoffs, games and events, and have access to "exclusive behind-the-scenes content feature the game's top players."

Pablo Sandoval was disciplined for “liking” an Instagram post during a game last July. Get it out of your system now, Panda.

Next Friday, Snap away.
