MLBAM Pulls Clips from iTunes PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, 27 September 2006 09:56

Apple ComputerMajor League Baseball Advanced Media (MLBAM), the arm of MLB that deals with internet-related content, has requested that Apple Computer pull Podcast clips of MLB games from its popular iTunes site.

As reported in the Wall Street Journal:

Last week, the league asked Apple to remove all promotions from iTunes for its podcasts, says Bob Bowman, chief executive of Major League Baseball Advanced Media, the Internet arm. Mr. Bowman said the decision was prompted, in part, by the lack of control the league had over how its podcasts were promoted with iTunes. He says Apple declined to give Major League Baseball podcasts better visibility on the site when the league asked for it.

He also says Apple wouldn't give the league a say in where promotions for its podcasts would appear on iTunes, leading to situations in which the league's content was adjacent to podcasts by individual baseball fans, Mr. Bowman says. "That may sound immaterial, but again the brand is very important to us," he said.

MLBAM will look to get users to view the clips once on iTunes through MLB.com. The impact to MLB should not be high as, "about three-quarters of its 40,000 to 50,000 podcast downloads a day occur through its own Web site, MLB.com."

Sluggers Howard, Ortiz & Pujols are Player of the Year finalists

Pujols, Smoltz & Thome vie for Marvin Miller Man of the Year honor

New York, NY, Wednesday, September 27, 2006 - Major League baseball players on all 30 teams have cast their votes to recognize their peers with the highest of honors – the esteemed Players Choice Awards, recognizing excellence both on and off the field. The Major League Baseball Players Association today announced the finalists in each of 10 award categories, including the coveted Marvin Miller Man of the Year award, given annually to the one player in either league whose performance both on and off the field most inspires his fellow players to higher levels of achievement.

The finalists for the Player of the Year award are Ryan Howard (Phillies), David Ortiz (Red Sox) and Albert Pujols (Cardinals).  Howard has paced the Phillies pursuit of the National League Wild Card while batting .316 with a Major League leading 58 home runs and 146 runs batted in.  Ortiz, the anchor of the Boston ’s offense is hitting .287 with American League leading 54 home runs and 137 runs batted in, while Pujols, who is hitting .330 with 46 homers and 130 RBI, has shouldered the offensive load for the first place Cardinals.

Leading the voting for the Marvin Miller Man of the Year award are Albert Pujols (Cardinals), John Smoltz (Braves) and Jim Thome (White Sox).  Pujols established the Pujols Family Foundation which is dedicated to the love, care and development of people with Down Syndrome.  In Atlanta , Smoltz created the “Strike Out Hunger” program to help eliminate hunger in the Atlanta region.  In addition to being a spokesman with the Prostate Cancer Foundation Thome has worked with the Chicago branch of Habitat for Humanity.

The balloting for the Players Choice Awards was conducted on September 12 and 13, under the supervision of accounting firm KPMG. Players Choice Awards are given annually to the top pitcher, player, rookie and comeback player in each league as well as an overall player of the year and man of the year.  The winners will be announced at a later date.

Each of the 2006 Players Choice Award winners will designate the charity of his choice to receive a grant from the Major League Baseball Players Trust.  To date, the Players Trust has distributed over $2.75 million to 155 charities through the Players Choice Awards program.

The 2006 Players Choice Awards finalists are listed below

CrosscuttersWilliamsport Crosscutters and the Philadelphia Phillies officials joined together at a Tuesday luncheon at the Genetti Hotel to announce a new two-year Player Development contract between the two organizations.

The deal marks the end of the Cutters affiliation with the Pittsburgh Pirates that started in 1999 and lasted for eight seasons. The Pirates announced Monday that they had signed a Player Development contract with the State College Spikes. The Phillies had spent the past 19 seasons in Batavia, N.Y.

"This is a great day for the Williamsport Crosscutters," stated club President Paul Velte. "We had a great relationship with the Pittsburgh Pirates and we wish them great success in State College. They gave us four playoff teams in eight years and two New York-Penn League titles, we couldn't ask for much more than that. But at the same time, the opportunity to partner with the Philadelphia Phillies was something we could not pass up. We have always said, internally, that the only thing better than being with the Pirates is if we could somehow get the Phillies here and today is the day."

Sale of Braves Still on Hold PDF Print E-mail
MLB News
Written by The Staff   
Wednesday, 27 September 2006 01:11

BravesFor months, the sale of the Braves from Time Warner to Liberty Media has been delayed due to issues that involve the IRS and MLB. Now, it appears that the delay will continue.

The sale involves a unique tax dodge for both Time Warner and Liberty Media. As reported:

"Perhaps all things with Time Warner are complicated," Maffei said, "but things related to baseball teams and the like are particularly complicated because you throw in Major League Baseball rules on top of all the restrictions of what Time Warner wants and we want and the '355' restrictions."

('355' refers to the section of the tax code pertaining to "cash-rich split-offs," legalese for this type of transaction. The proposed deal would have Time Warner put the Braves and about $1.35 billion into a newly formed subsidiary, then exchange that subsidiary to Liberty Media for about 107 million shares of Time Warner stock long held by Liberty. If various requirements are met, Liberty could avoid tax on the stock sale and Time Warner could avoid tax on the team sale. The combined tax savings could be as high as $700 million.)

On MLB's side of the ledger is concern of the ownership structure. MLB often prefers "family ownership", but in this case, the Braves would be owned by a corporation (Liberty Media). Possible solutions to satisfy MLB might be, "entering into an agreement to have Braves chairman and president Terry McGuirk continue to run the team."

Major League Baseball, MasterCard Worldwide announce multi-year sponsorship extension

Major League Baseball and MasterCard Worldwide yesterday announced a new global sponsorship agreement that will extend MasterCard's relationship with Major League Baseball and MLB.com through the 2010 season. The agreement includes exclusive category rights granted by Major League Baseball Properties, Major League Baseball International and MLB Advanced Media.

Along with its sponsorship of Major League Baseball, MasterCard has sponsorship alliances with 17 MLB Clubs, including a new relationship with 26-time World Series Champions the New York Yankees in 2006. This year, for the first time, MasterCard is the preferred Card of both New York-based clubs, the New York Mets and Yankees. In addition to the Yankees and Mets, MasterCard is also an official sponsor of the following Major League Baseball Clubs: Atlanta Braves, Baltimore Orioles, Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Chicago White Sox, Cincinnati Reds, Cleveland Indians, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Los Angeles Dodgers, Oakland A's, Philadelphia Phillies, St. Louis Cardinals, San Diego Padres, Seattle Mariners and Toronto Blue Jays.

This season, 12 MLB ballparks began accepting MasterCard® PayPass, a new "contactless" payment option giving fans the chance to pay for their purchases under $25 with a simple tap of their PayPass enabled card or device on specially equipped merchant terminals. With MasterCard PayPass, sports fans spend less time standing in line or fumbling for cash at concession stands, and more time catching the onfield action. PayPass is now accepted at Yankee Stadium, Shea Stadium (Mets), Citizens Bank Park (Phillies), Turner Field (Braves), Dodger Stadium (Dodgers), PETCO Park (Padres), Busch Stadium (Cardinals), Jacobs Field (Indians), Wrigley Field (Cubs), U.S. Cellular Field (White Sox), Fenway Park (Red Sox), and Great American Ball Park (Reds).

"We are proud to renew our relationship with MasterCard, which has become an important part of our game and an integral part of our business," said Tim Brosnan, Executive Vice President, Business, Major League Baseball. "When we partner with a company we are searching for a brand that exhibits similar brand qualities and will work with us to market the game aggressively. MasterCard has been an outstanding partner since we began our relationship nearly a decade ago and Major League Baseball looks forward to working with them on exciting and creative marketing platforms for years to come."

Tiger StadiumTiger Stadium's date with the wrecking ball will be delayed due to engineering and other studies, Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick said Monday. The cost to partially raze the historic ballpark is between $2 million to $5 million. The city plans to recoup part of the cost by selling portions of the stadium as memoribilla. As reported:
Over the summer, the city Economic Development Corp. approved hiring companies to evaluate how to dismantle the stadium and determine what steps should be taken to address environmentally sensitive substances, such as asbestos and lead-based paint, that had been used to paint older sections of the ballpark.

"There's a difference in having a historic dismantling versus demolition," Kilpatrick said. "It's a little more complicated."

The request for proposals from developers should be issued in a few months, he said.

After the stadium is partially razed, a mixed-use development of 150 condos atop 40-50 retail shops on the 8.5-acre site will sit in its place.

Plans are to "to maintain the original stadium entrance as a gateway and leave the baseball diamond as a park for Little League games and festivals."

 Dimitri YoungFormer Tigers player Dimitri Young will not be going to jail, but will serve probation for one year. The probation stems from an assault on his former girlfriend.

"I'm sorry that the incident happened," Young told Judge Diane D'Agostini. He then turned to his former girlfriend and said, "Michelle, I'd like to apologize for what happened and I wish you the best of luck."

Young will have to serve the probation in Michigan as the Judge denied a request to serve the probation in his home state of California or to travel to Florida to visit family.

Retrospective on Ned Colletti PDF Print E-mail
MLB News
Written by The Staff   
Tuesday, 26 September 2006 06:01

Ned CollettiSteve Henson of the LA Times has an extensive retrospective on Ned Colletti today. Colletti was initially criticized for his moves since he left as Assistant GM for the Giants, and became the GM of the Dodgers this past off-season. Now, Coletti has the Dodgers fighting for a playoff position. Some highlights of the article include:


  • Colletti is restless and anxious, even after tearing down and rebuilding the Dodgers from the manager's office to the clubhouse in a whirlwind that began last winter. He wants to please everyone on his side, from owner Frank McCourt to Dodgers fans, and he wants to show everyone who isn't, from those in baseball who doubted him to that counselor, wherever he might be.

    "I just don't want to let anyone down," Colletti said.

  • "He thinks through things methodically, he weighs the plusses and the minuses," said Colletti's brother, Doug, a commercial portfolio manager in Chicago. "He relies on people more than other GMs might. He listens and seeks advice."

  • Colletti's mother also nurtured his love of baseball. World Series games were played during the day in the 1960s, and she promised as he left the house for school that she would keep track of the action.

  • Colletti's childhood memories center around family and baseball. There's the one about his first Cubs game on April 15, 1961, the day before his seventh birthday. His dad splurged on box seats and he was awestruck by Ernie Banks, Billy Williams and the down-to-earth player he could relate to most, Santo.
