Batter up.
To stay on top of MLB history, scores, schedules, and standings, start with
“Hey Google …”

Do your own personal warm up before the game
11. Make sure you’re ready for whatever the weather may bring. Before heading to the game, ask “Hey Google, what’s the weather like at Dodger Stadium?”
12. Didn’t score tickets but want to watch the game with fellow fans? Simply say “Hey Google, find the nearest sports bar.”
When you're cheering from your couch instead of the stands
13. Set a reminder so you don’t miss a second of the game. Say “Hey Google, remind me to turn on the game when I get home.”
