The MLB home page at <http://mlb.mlb.com/> has two Flash elements, which
may be videos. I'm quite sure the pages for individual teams also
contain Flash elements. The center of the home page even indicates
"Powered by Adobe Flash".
I have FlashBlock installed. This allows me to suppress all Flash
elements, white-list some for showing, and select some off a Web page on
a case-by-case basis for showing. See <http://flashblock.mozdev.org/>.

Go to Mozdev at <http://www.mozdev.org/> for quick access to
extensions for Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, and other
Mozilla-related applications. You can access Mozdev much
more quickly than you can Mozilla Add-Ons.
