On any given day in the spring or summer, there are several major league baseball games being played across the continent. You can't watch every single one. That's why you rely on sports websites to keep track of the major league baseball (MLB) scores for you. If you've got access to a computer, you can easily get real time, up-to-the-minute MLB scores. Here are some great sports websites that you should bookmark so that you'll always be able to visit them for real time MLB scores.
Go to MLB.com. For real time MLB scores, you should first try http://www.mlb.com/. It's the sports' official homepage, and it's packed full of goodies. You can find team schedules, standings, playoff brackets and sometimes even rumors about upcoming MLB trades. You can obviously find MLB scores on this website as well. Copy or type the address into your browser's address bar. On the very left-hand side of the web page, you'll see a black box containing all of the MLB scheduled games for the day. The game's start time is listed if it hasn't begun yet. If it has, you should be able to view the current score. Or, you can always surf to the ‘Scoreboard' page found in the red toolbar at the top of the screen. The inning-by-inning score will be shown. Remember that your page sometimes won't refresh itself every time the score changes. You need to click on the ‘refresh' button to get the newest real-time score information.
Visit ESPN.com. ESPN is a great website for finding up-to-the-minute major league baseball game scores. Surf to http://www.espn.com/ and choose the ‘MLB' or ‘Major League Baseball' link. Once there, click on the ‘Scoreboard' link from the toolbar. (If you're having a hard time, just surf directly to http://scores.espn.go.com/mlb/scoreboard .) You'll see the real time MLB scores listed for the current day, but you can also look at the scoreboards from previous games. If you wanted to, you can even look at the blank scoreboard for the upcoming MLB games.
Don't forget to visit CBS Sports.com. Considered a forerunner when it comes to current sports information, http://www.cbssports.com/ is an informative site that will give you all the real time scores that you crave. Visit the main website and then surf to ‘MLB' (the major league baseball section). Once there, choose the ‘Scoreboard' link from the menu at the top of the page. You'll be shown the real time MLB scores for each major league baseball game being played in both the National and American league. Again, remember to refresh your web page often so that you can be sure your scoring information is current.
