WGT Baseball: MLB (http://www.facebook.com/WGTBaseballMLB) is a free realistic baseball game on Facebook that puts fans inside their favorite MLB ballparks in HD virtual reality. In a unique blend of social gaming and fantasy sports, players manage their rosters of Facebook friends, making strategic in-game decisions and competing head-to-head against other players in a home run derby, single-inning games, and new month-long seasons.

The rapid growth of WGT Baseball: MLB follows on the success of the company’s World Golf Tour game and to reflect the expansion into other sports, the company also has been renamed from World Golf Tour to WGT, and will continue to publish new high-quality games for sports fans under the WGT brand.

“Our vision has been to expand sports media by developing realistic social sports games that engage sports fans. It’s exciting to already see our baseball game become the largest currently on Facebook and have a partner like MLB Advanced Media to help reach baseball fans worldwide,” said YuChiang Cheng, co-founder and CEO, WGT.

“Working with a great partner like WGT is indicative of our strategy in developing social games that deliver a realistic and fun MLB experience where fans can engage with their friends and other fans in fantasy baseball-like competitions,” said Jeffrey Volk, VP of Business Development at, MLB Advanced Media.
