MLB Will Not Boot Out Fans Streaming Games

Despite earlier reports to the contrary, Major League Baseball will not eject fans from stadiums who are live-streaming games via Meerkat or Periscope. A Wall Street Journal report had earlier suggested that fans would be booted out for using the new streaming technologies. A clarification from Bob Bowman (MLB Advanced Media CEO and president) came swiftly, "I don't know how The Wall Street Journal got that story. I've been dealing with them for 30 years. They just got it flat out wrong. That's called an error." Oh, well, maybe Rolling Stone could handle the story better.
