Geeking for Some Baseball?

I’ve been reading an extraordinary number of tweets where baseball fans state they simply cannot wait for the baseball season to start. I’m in the same boat. I have found a means to cure my “baseball fever”. Well, a partial cure. Where? Of all places, on Facebook.

Believe it or not (most likely, you will), there are a number of baseball related games there. Some you may be aware of, and some you may not. Some are more advanced than others, so they will take a little more of your time. You’ll see as we go forward.

With each of these I mention, please keep in mind that I receive no kickback from the games publishers, producers, or any person associated with any of these games. I am doing this on my own accord. I will add that with all FB games, there will be those that are hesitant to play due to privacy concerns. I recommend reading the full description of each on the appropriate app page for details. For the games I have listed, the link to each game’s app page is included (as the title) so that you may see, in part, what each game entails.

Another thing, and if you play any games on FB, you are aware of the following fact. Many FB games require your FB friends to help you with certain aspects of games. After all, these games are social events. The more friends, the quicker you may be able to complete certain tasks provided your friends play the same game. If you’re not a big FB gamer, but want to play, you may feel inclined to add new FB friends that you do not personally know. As always, be cautious in doing so.

I will add this along with my last sentence. I play some FB games (as those on my FB friends list will attest) and I have met some wonderful individuals in doing so. Even with that in mind, I will repeat to use discretion before adding anyone you do not know to your friends list. That is my best advice for any form of social media.

Here’s a handful that I have discovered. I have devoted a “page” for each game. Yes, less scrolling for you!. The games are listed in no particular order.
