Question:

B”H I’m currently in Eretz Yisrael, and it’s the middle of the baseball playoffs. The next two games in the National League (1st two semifinal games) are going to be Friday night and Saturday afternoon, local time. I believe one of the players for the Dodgers is Jewish. Once Shabbos is over for me in EY, is there an issue watching the game or checking the score?

Answer:

As far as hilchos Shabbos is concerned, you are allowed to watch the games and check the scores. The reason is because the broadcasts of the games are done by gentiles and they are not targeting the Jewish audience.

Best Wishes
