MLB Finally Allows Its Videos to be Embedded

After years of sending out cease and desist letters to anyone who had the temerity to embed YouTube videos of Major League Baseball action, the league has finally (albeit quietly) relented and is now allowing blogs and other websites to embed some videos, though not the most recent game recaps or highlights.
