Note: This extension does not support the Vivaldi browser - it has some differences from Google Chrome around how extensions are handled that cause the extension to not function properly.
This extension adds an icon with your chosen MLB baseball team at the top of the browser that shows information about today's game in the icon's hover-text, real-time score and play information during games (including teams, location, inning, and pitcher), and the appropriate win/loss flag when it's over!
This is an active project - if you find a bug (or think of a useful feature), please report it via the extension's page in the Chrome store, and I'll get it updated as soon as I can!

1.8 - Fixed issue where Delayed Start game wouldn't get updates right away after starting
2.0 - Updated to use MLB's new API, and updated the in-game icon so that you can see the score as well as what bases have runners on them, how many outs, top/bottom and inning number. Also includes additional info in hover-text like number of balls, strikes, outs, and current batter. Revert to the old, simpler in-game icon by ticking the "Enable Simplified In-Game View" option in the right-click menu.
2.1 - Fixed an issue with a previously unseen game state that caused game status to no longer update. Implemented a workaround that should prevent this from causing breaking changes in the future.

2.3 - Fixed a (timezone conversion) bug causing night games to not register as a game today.
2.4 - Updated game postponement info in hover text
2.5 - Fixed a bug in the hovertext where the incorrect team would be named with players on base
2.6 - Added a third view option for non-fans to only see if there's a home game today or not without any game details, and restructured the menu a bit to accommodate it
2.7 - Added Arizona timezone
3.0 - Updated to Extension Manifest v3, logic updates to handle changes in MLB API that broke in-game hovertext, added partial/hack support for Vivaldi browser (which only shows one sub-menu, so Team is now first, still no way to change timezone or mode), updated Indians team name to Guardians. This release required a TON of changes; please let me know what issues you find.
3.1 - Fixed logo image quality issue
