I love baseball. That's why I want Major League Baseball to do the right thing and get with the times. But the league seems hell bent on making sure it's as unfriendly as it is popular. Whether that's true is irrelevant. The perception is dead on. To make a long story short, the Twitter account PitchingNinja which had more than 50, followers posts GIFs of impressive pitches. MLB does not like people on Twitter posting any GIFs or videos from their games and got the account suspended over the weekend. It is hard to fathom why on earth MLB would 1 not want promotion for its product, 2 go after a legitimate fan of the sport, and 3 do something that would get the league universally ripped.
Another day, another story of copyright gone stupid. This time it involves Major League Baseball, which is no stranger to stupid copyright arguments. Going back fifteen years, we wrote about Major League Baseball claiming that other websites couldn't even describe professional baseball games. There was a legal fight over this and MLB lost. A decade ago, MLB was shutting down fan pages for doing crazy things like "using a logo" of their favorite sports team.

Up your messaging game with MLB. All rights reserved. I noticed a handful of new GIFs. How about keeping up with each season? Puig is no longer with The Dodgers, as well as a few other players and staff. Their GIFs should be deleted. They should be in this app.
