Excited for baseball to be back in the Olympics? You’ll have to stream the games.

Baseball and softball have returned to the Olympics this year — if the Games actually happen. The COVID spreading through the area and no spectators watching the events live, it’s going to look and feel like no Olympics in history.

But there’s a schedule in place for baseball, and now we know when and where you can watch the tournament. Most of the games will only be available through NBC Sports’ app or via NBCOlympics.com, and the time difference means the games will be either late at night or early in the morning.

So grab some coffee and sunflower seeds for breakfast… or a couple late night beers and seeds for a snack. Here’s how, when and where you can watch the games of the Olympic baseball tournament.
