Want to be the first to know where Prince Fielder, Carlos Beltran, and Gio Gonzalez land? MLBTR is already coming at you from many angles, and now we have an option to receive text message alerts on your mobile phone.
If you'd like to receive a text message on your cell phone for each significant MLB transaction, just text IMS2 MLBTR to 368674. It's not case-sensitive but please note the space between "IMS2" and "MLBTR." Each news text message will likely include a sponsored message at the end. To comply with FCC text message regulations you are required to double opt-in by replying with a 1, then a yes to subscribe. Once you successfully opt in, you'll receive a message that says "Thank you for subscribing!"
The service is free, though standard message and data rates may apply. Your information will never shared or sold to third parties. The MLBTR service will not work if your carrier is MetroPCS.
If you're an advertiser who would like to send a sponsored message following an MLBTR news text, contact Tim Dierkes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
