Before the 2019 MLB season began, the New York Mets and Yahoo announced that they would partner on a pay site that would cover the team and provide exclusive videos, podcasts and stories. More than a month into the season, the site is still yet to see the light of day.
The site was originally set to be called Queens Baseball Club. According to the New York Post’s Andrew Marchand, one of the results of the delay is a name change. The site will now be called Flushing Meadows Baseball Club. As for when it debuts, that is still yet to be determined.
The initial delay was for the Mets and Yahoo to receive the blessing of Major League Baseball. Now that it has been secured though, there is still no sign of Flushing Meadows Baseball Club on the internet.
Marchand didn’t receive a direct answer when he asked about the cause of the delay. He did receive a statement from a Yahoo spokesperson that read “We are working to perfect the product, Flushing Meadows Baseball Club, while it is in closed Beta. We will be launching for all Mets fans very soon.”
