Wednesday June 6th, 2012

Major League Baseball All-Stars can tweet once they come out of the game, according to a MLB press release.

The All-Star game will be July 10th at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. MLB will have computer stations adjacent to each clubhouse to allow players to interact with fans.  The All-Stars will also complete other media obligations once they are no longer competing in the game and before returning to the bench. "At its core, baseball is a social activity, so it’s natural that social media has become such a huge part of how fans enjoy the game today,” said Tim Brosnan, Executive Vice President, Business, Major League Baseball.
