It’s March, and while basketball rules this month, I’m ready for baseball! I’ve been following my beloved Detroit Tigers throughout the spring. One way I keep track of when my Motor City Kitties are playing is through the Interesting Calendars feature in Google Calendar.
Here’s how it works:
From the left side menu, click the Plus sign next to Add a coworker’s calendar. Here’s where you can add other calendars.
Next, choose Browse calendars of interest.
You’ll be taken to a list of calendars that are available for subscription. You can choose Holidays, Sports and Other.
Here, I selected Baseball, then Major League Baseball – MLB. From here, you can select your favorite team.
Now, head back to your calendar by using the back arrow at the top. You’ll see that your calendar has now been added to the sidebar under Other calendars.
Events from this calendar will now appear on your calendar.
If your favorite team is not listed, there is still possibly a way to get it. All you need is a subscription URL. Once you have that, click the plus sign again, and this time, choose From URL. Paste in the URL and you’ll be set.
By the way, if you want to turn off the calendars you’ve added, just click the checkbox next to the calendar’s name to hide it.
