Spring Training + Social Media

If you’re not following your favorite baseball team’s social media accounts, then what are you doing?! Within the last few years, I’ve noticed that teams are using social media platforms more and more to interact with their fans. We now get a behind the scenes look at the game, and since teams have reported for spring training in either Florida or Arizona, Twitters and Instagrams and Snapchats are aflutter with baseball goodness.

I follow the Red Sox and MLB on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat, and the Tigers on Instagram and Snapchat (because my dad’s a fan, I’m partially a fan of them, plus they typically go farther than the Sox in the playoffs). Every day I look forward to checking their accounts to get up-to-date information and pictures from sunny Florida.

The pictures in the above slideshow are from the Red Sox Instagram and Snapchat accounts. Fans get a live look-in at practices, and sometimes the players take over the accounts. Wednesday on the MLB Snapchat, Rays pitcher Chris Archer did a Snapchat take over and chronicled his morning practices with the team for followers.

I highly recommend scoping out your favorite team’s social media accounts, especially during spring training. It’s almost as good as being there (and cheaper, too).
