While MLB teams have been prepping for the start of the season, Alexa's been getting ready, too. Here are some of the ways to enjoy this year’s MLB season with her.
Keep current on scores and stats
Alexa can help fans size up their team’s next match-up with game previews. Just try asking Alexa, “Give me an Astros game preview” or “Give me a preview of the Padres game.” Once a regular or postseason game has ended, ask Alexa for a recap. Just say, “Give me a Dodgers game recap” or, “Give me a recap of the Mets game.”
As the season progresses, Alexa will be following head-to-head match-ups. Keep current on how teams are faring against each other. Just ask, “How do the Yankees do versus the Red Sox.”
Brush up on your stats...
Alexa is an expert in not just traditional stats, but sabermetrics too! Try asking questions like, “Which Royals player has the highest slugging percentage” or “What is Aaron Judge’s on base percentage?”
Or baseball lingo
Casual fans who want to know what baseball stats mean, Alexa can help. Ask things like, “What does WAR stand for in baseball?” and “How do you calculate ERA in baseball?”
More of a 7th-inning -stretch kind of fan?
Grab your peanuts and Cracker Jacks and ask Alexa to hear a baseball joke or to sing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" and check out the Stat Muse and Westwood One Sports skills. If you have a TuneIn Live subscription, you can access live MLB games, premium news, talk shows and more. Just say, “Alexa, open TuneIn Live” to get started.
