This week the American Gaming Association announced that it has partnered with Major League Baseball to push a "Have a Game Plan. Bet Responsibly." campaign.
The campaign is going to airing during the MLB's upcoming 2022 postseason and running through the World Series. In addition to the postseason tournament, the AGA will give MLB teams the chance to leverage AGA advice and expertise on pushing responsible gambling information. In addition to the AGA, the MLB will be working with the NCPG National Problem Gambling Hotline to promote seeking help for fans who've had gambling problems pop up in their lives.
Regarding the deal MLB Executive VP of Business Development Kenny Gersh said, "As legalized wagering continues to grow across the country, MLB is committed to ensuring that fans who choose to wager also have the tools and resources necessary to bet responsibly.
"With the expertise and additional resources of the AGA and NCPG, we'll be able to expand our responsible gaming efforts further, driving new education, awareness and support service initiatives that will help keep sports betting safe, fun and entertaining for all those who participate."
AGA Senior VP Casey Clark also commented, adding: "Welcoming MLB as a Have A Game Plan partner is a milestone for the campaign and responsible gaming efforts nationwide.
"MLB understands that as legal sports betting grows so does our collective commitment to responsibility. This partnership will have a meaningful impact, teaching fans across the country the fundamentals of responsible wagering."
