It’s the nature of the game, but that doesn’t mean it’s not difficult for fringe fans to latch onto. The topic? MLB’s postseason broadcast schedule. With rainouts, how teams are faring in each series, the dates and times can move. Throw in that it can be on one or two different Turner Network stations (TBS or TNT), and you can get lost in the channel guide.

Fear not, Turner and MLB have released the national broadcast schedule for the entire American League and National League Division Series.  TBS, TNT and ESPN Radio will provide national coverage of all Division Series games.  Additional live coverage of all Postseason games will be provided by XM Radio, MLB.com and MLB Network.

How Klout Could Influence Sport Team Social Media Direction PDF Print E-mail

If you take social media seriously, you’ll find that there’s more to it than just following others or asking them to follow you. Social media is about engagement, increasing brand, and if you’re a business, engaging directly with your consumer base.

For the longest time, the metric used for success was really about just a pure “follower” number. The logic being, the higher the number, the more successful you’re marketing yourself, right? Well….

Really, it comes back to that thing “engagement”. How will are your Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, or Foursquare postings being received?

It’s been hard to balance social media here on the Business of Sports Network. After all, content is the bread and butter, but the ability to have social media as a platform to provide links to that content, and gain commentary from it almost has to be spread through social media outlets.

Frustrated about tracking divergent sources, the launch of Klout (Klout.com), has been a boon to understanding and seeing real or near real-time feedback on how you are being received via your Klout Influence Score that taps the social media platforms.

For sports franchises, who are now actively engaging in social media, Klout would seem near mandatory. Media outlets should do likewise to gauge how effective they are.

Measuring your impact in social media is paramount now. Klout seems like a solution for many to follow.

Ranking Major League Baseball By Twitter Followers PDF Print E-mail

Yesterday, we ranked all 30 teams in Major League Baseball by the number of Facebook fans. It was a good look at how pure brand power elevates national interest (the Yankees and Red Sox lead the pack), and with some proactive social media direction, how you are in the standings or your market size can be slightly overcome (the Cleveland Indians).

Today, we thought it would be interesting to see how the teams fare on the other major social media platform, Twitter.

In a sign that Twitter is still in the shadows of Facebook, the total number of followers for all 30 teams in MLB on Twitter is 2,362,301 a fraction of what Facebook has in term of fans (as of yesterday, 22,838,066).

The key difference is that instead of the Yankees or the Red Sox leading the pack, the most followed MLB team account on Twitter is the Philadelphia Phillies at 645,771. To put that in perspective, that total on Facebook would have ranked 13th.

In terms of the lowest follower and fan base across Twitter and Facebook, the award goes to the Florida Marlins (28th on Facebook and 30th on Twitter).

Here’s the league counted by Twitter followers as of 9am ET on 9/20/2011:

Rank Team Twitter Followers
1 Phillies 645,771
2 Yankees 442,769
3 Giants 185,699
4 Red Sox 140,896
5 Braves 100,322
6 Dodgers 71,200
7 Blue Jays 63,386
8 Cubs 60,322
9 Rangers 59,085
10 Reds 52,228
11 Mets 47,800
12 Twins 46,894
13 Cardinals 44,798
14 Brewers 34,211
15 W Sox 33,068
16 Rays 31,833
17 Royals 30,039
18 Mariners 29,830
19 Indians 29,187
20 Angels 25,451

25 Nationals 19,914
26 D-Backs 19,303
27 Pirates 17,926
28 Astros 16,291
29 Padres 11,035
30 Marlins 11,002

Facebook

Social media. It’s no longer a novelty; it’s a key driver in fan engagement across the sports landscape.

Today, the Boston Red Sox announced that they surpassed 3 million fans on Facebook, adding 1.2 million fans since Jan. 1, alone.

So, how do the Red Sox rank against the other 30 teams in MLB on Facebook? Unsurprisingly, they’re second behind only the Yankees who see a stagger lead of over 1.4 million fans.

But, what should surprise some clubs (and should be something that they take note), those that have an active social media presence and have made it part of their outreach to fans, see significant distance over others, even if they are in small markets and not performing well in the standings.

The best case in point may be the Cleveland Indians who rank 15 out of 30, a higher ranking that the Angels or the Diamondbacks (who rank 29th out of 30), the latter of which is running away with the NL West and the Angels who have a solid fan base and have been flirting on the edge of winning the AL Wild Card.

How does the league shake on out Facebook? A total of 22,838,066 “Liked” team pages as of 4pm on Monday Sept. 19, 2011. Here they are by ranking.

Rank Team FB Followers
1 Yankees 4,548,205

The games may take four hours, but fans in New England clearly don’t care. Case in point Wednesday night’s Red Sox-Yankees game earned a 15.2 household rating (26 share) in the Boston DMA, NESN’s highest game rating of the 2011 season. The two previous season high ratings were also Yankees games (14.0 on Tuesday, August 30 and 13.6 on August 5th).

NESN is scheduled to cover game 3 of the Red Sox-Yankee series tonight with pre-game coverage beginning at 6 PM. The network will also broadcast 2 of the 3 Red Sox-Yankee games that are scheduled in New York during the last weekend of the regular season on Friday, September 23 and Sunday, September 25.

NESN’s 2011 season average household rating has climbed to a 7.9, up 26% over last season after the same number of games (124).

Texas RangersWith the Texas Rangers going to the World Series last year, and currently sitting atop the AL West, 3.5 games up on the Angels, interest in the team is riding high.

Case in point, the Rangers’ 2-0 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays Tuesday night produced the team’s highest television rating of the season and the fourth best of all-time on FOX Sports Southwest, according to Nielsen Media Research.

The game averaged a 7.0 household rating and a 12 share in Dallas-Fort Worth, topping the previous season high of 6.4 on Aug. 18 against the Los Angeles Angels.

An average of 181,600 Dallas-Fort Worth homes watched Tuesday’s game. It was the most-watched program in the market from 8:00-10:15 p.m. when it averaged a 7.5 rating (194,850 homes), and finished as the No. 2 program of the night behind CBS’ NCIS (7.3).

Tuesday night’s rating ranks No. 4 on FOX Sports Southwest’s Rangers’ all-time list behind a 9.3 on Aug. 11, 2010 vs. the New York Yankees, an 8.0 on Aug. 10, 2010 vs. the New York Yankees; and a 7.3 on Aug. 25, 2010 vs. the Minnesota Twins.

Entire Dodgers Broadcast Team to Return for 2012 Season PDF Print E-mail

While the troubles of the Dodgers extend into bankruptcy, attendance, and the standings, the one area that the club can claim victory is the broadcast booth.

That extended today as the club announced that the eight-man broadcast team, led by Hall of Famers Vin Scully (see details) and Jaime Jarrín (see details), will all return to the booths in 2012, the club announced today.

Scully, who will enter an unprecedented 63rd season in the booth and Jarrín, who will begin his 54th season, each announced their return over the weekend.

Rick Monday will be entering his 27th season with the Dodger organization and 19th as a broadcaster. The former All-Star outfielder and World Series champion has been honored recently by the Southern California Sports Broadcasters Association as the top Radio Color Commentator and that organization inducted him into its Hall of Fame in 2008. Monday handles analysis on KABC 790 for all home and road games.

Next season will be Fernando Valenzuela’s 21st with the organization and ninth behind the mic. The legendary left-hander was recently named the Foreign Language Broadcaster of the Year for the second time by the Southern California Sports Broadcasters Association. A Mexico native, Valenzuela’s impact on the game of baseball transcends his All-Star numbers on the field. He provides analysis alongside Jarrín and Pepe Yñiguez for all Dodger home games and road games against the National League West.

Yñiguez will begin his 14th full season alongside Jarrín and 15th overall with the Dodgers. While the majority of his games are on Univision Radio (KTNQ 1020) as the play-by-play announcer, Yñiguez also calls select games alongside legendary coach Manny Mota for the PRIME TICKET television broadcasts.

Charley Steiner will be entering his eighth season as a play-by-play announcer for the Dodgers in 2012. (read The Biz of Baseball interview with Steiner) A four-time Emmy Award winner, he recently delivered the commencement speech at his alma mater, Bradley University, where he is a member of the school’s Sports Hall of Fame. The New York native calls every game on KABC 790 alongside Monday.

Steve Lyons is returning for his eighth season as part of the Dodger broadcast team (read not one, but two interviews on The Biz of Baseball with Lyons). He calls all road games outside the NL West and co-hosts the Dodgers’ pre- and post-game shows on PRIME TICKET. A three-time Emmy Award winner and former Major League outfielder, Lyons provides analysis alongside Eric Collins.

Collins returns for his fourth season calling play-by-play on road games outside of the National League West. Recently named as one of the lead announcers for the Big Ten Network, Collins also has worked as a broadcaster for ESPN and NBC during the 2008 Olympic Games. He works alongside Lyons and contributes to the pre-game shows on KCAL and PRIME TICKET.
