“We talked a long time ago about bitcoin and whether we should accept it as payment for MLB.tv and some of our other products, and we opted not to, Kenny Gersh, MLB’s executive VP of gaming and new business ventures, told PYMNTS.com. “At the end of the day we decided that isn’t our business, we’re not in the speculation business. We’re in the business of delivering baseball to fans. So this game is a more interesting intersection of blockchain technology and what we do.”

As of this writing, William White did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
