MLB on FOXTHIS IS BREAKING NEWS...

iNDemand, a consortium of cable providers, released a statement today in which FOX and Major League Baseball have altered the exclusivity agreement that has impacted national blackouts for MLB Extra Innings. The statement released to cable affilates dated 4/2/10 reads:

Major League Baseball and Fox Network have revised the Saturday afternoon exclusivity windows which will now allow for more games in the MLB Extra Innings package. The new blackout windows will vary depending on the time of the Fox broadcast. Below are the three scenarios that will exist:

1) On a Saturday when the first MLB game to be telecast by Fox starts at 4:10pm ET games that start at 1:10pm ET or earlier and 7:05pm ET or later will be included in the package. No games that begin between 1:10pm ET and 7:05pm ET will be included. This will be the case on 21 Saturdays this season.

2) On a Saturday when the first MLB game to be telecast by Fox starts at 3:10pm ET games that start at 12:10pm ET or earlier and 6:05pm ET or later will be included in the package. No games that begin between 12:10pm ET and 6:05pm ET will be included. This will be the case on 3 Saturdays this season (April 10, May 1 and May 8).

3) On a Saturday when the first MLB game to be telecast by Fox starts at 7:10pm ET games that start at 4:10pm ET or earlier and 10:05pm ET or later will be included in the package. No games that begin between 4:10pm ET and 10:05pm ET will be included. This will be the case on 2 Saturdays this season (May 22 and June 26).

There is an assumption this agreement will also include DirecTV subscribers and other cable operators outside of iNDemand. More details as they become available.

Curt Schilling Joins ESPN as Baseball Analyst PDF Print E-mail

Curt Schilling

Former Major League Baseball pitcher Curt Schilling, a six-time All-Star and three-time World Series champion, has joined ESPN as a baseball analyst.  He will contribute to ESPNBoston.com, ESPN.com, ESPN Radio and Baseball TonightSchilling will debut tomorrow, Sunday, April 4, during Baseball Tonight’s live coverage of Opening Night – New York Yankees at Boston Red Sox – from Fenway Park at 7 p.m. on ESPN2. He will join fellow Red Sox All-Star and current ESPN analyst Nomar Garciaparra (also in his first year with the network), John Kruk, Bobby Valentine, host Karl Ravech and reporters Tim Kurkjian and Buster Olney.

Schilling pitched for five teams over 20 Major League seasons – the Baltimore Orioles (1988-90), Houston Astros (1991), Philadelphia Phillies (1992-2000), Arizona Diamondbacks (2000-03) and Boston Red Sox (2004-07). Schilling announced his retirement in 2009, having amassed 216 career wins, 3,116 strikeouts and a 3.46 ERA.

He notched more than 20 wins three times – 2001 (22 wins, tied for MLB lead), 2002 (23) and 2004 (21, led Majors), finishing runner up in the National League Cy Young voting all three years.  Schilling also led the Majors in strikeouts in 1997 (319) and led the National League with 300 K’s in 1998.  He hurled the most complete games in the Major Leagues in 1998 (15) and the most in the N.L. in 1996 (eight) and 2001 (six).

Schilling was one of the most dominant postseason starters in baseball history, with a career 11-2 record, 120 strikeouts and a 2.23 ERA.  He was named World Series MVP in 2001, leading the Arizona Diamondbacks over the New York Yankees. During that Series, Schilling recorded 26 strikeouts in 21.1 innings and a 1.69 ERA.

Schilling was the recipient of the 2001 Roberto Clemente Award, which is given to the player who “best exemplifies the game of baseball, sportsmanship, community involvement and the individual's contribution to his team.”  He also was presented with the 2001 Branch Rickey Award, in recognition of his exceptional community service.  In 1995, he earned the Lou Gehrig Memorial Award, given to the player who best exemplifies character and integrity on and off the field.

The 43-year-old Schilling and his wife, Shonda, are active in raising awareness of ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease) as well as malignant melanoma (of which Shonda is a survivor).  Schilling writes a popular web site – www.38pitches.com – which was developed to support these initiatives, in addition to serving as a forum to communicate with fans of the Red Sox, Major League Baseball and the Computer Gaming Industry.

2010 MLB Season Opener to Be Broadcast Across China for First Time PDF Print E-mail

MLB

China

For the first time ever, the Major League Baseball (MLB) season opener will be televised live across China, over five broadcasters reaching nearly 300 million fans. The 2010 MLB Championship Season opens on Sunday, April 4 at 8:05 P.M. (EST) at Boston’s historic Fenway Park, featuring the most-storied rivalry in all of sports: the Boston Red Sox and the reigning World Series Champion New York Yankees.

Financial terms were not released.

In 2010, MLBI enters into new agreements with two broadcast partners in China, Chongqing TV (CTV) and Shaanxi TV, and has existing agreements with Guangdong TV (GDTV), Jiangsu TV and Shenzhen TV.  The MLB relationship with Jiangsu TV and Shenzhen TV began with the 2009 World Series and includes the 2010 MLB All-Star Game, 2010 World Series and episodes of “This Week in Baseball” (TWIB).  Over the course of the 2010 season, Guangdong TV, one of the largest and most influential sports stations in southern China, will broadcast TWIB, Championship Season games and the World Series.

In addition, MLBI has agreements with 90 television and radio partners to broadcast Championship Season games, the 2010 MLB All-Star Game and the 2010 postseason in 19 languages to fans in 219 countries and territories around the world. In 2010, fans in Puerto Rico will be able to watch MLB games on the island’s leading broadcast station, WAPA, as well as sister network WAPA 2. MLB has also extended agreements with longtime partners, including Dentsu (Japan); ESPN Star Sports (Pan-Asia); Le Reseau de Sport (Canada), RPC and TV Max (Panama) and Formosa TV (Taiwan).

“We strive to bring the 30 MLB Clubs and the more than 800 MLB players – nearly 30% of whom hail from outside of the United States – to our international fan base. Television and radio exposure are a primary vehicle for doing this,” said Paul Archey, Senior Vice President, International Business Operations, Major League Baseball. “We are extremely excited to get the 2010 MLB season underway and to welcome billions of viewers around the world to follow along with us.”

2010 MLB Home Run Derby to Be Televised in 3D by ESPN PDF Print E-mail

Home Run Derby

Imagine if there had been 3D coverage on the A-Rod home run ball that hit the camera during the World Series?

ESPN 3D has added the State Farm Home Run Derby telecast on Monday, July 12 at 8 p.m. EST to the list of events that will appear on the new network.  ESPN3D will kick off on June 11 with the first 2010 FIFA World Cup match featuring South Africa vs. Mexico. The State Farm Home Run Derby telecast will be the first event produced by ESPN 3D.

“It's fitting that we launch ESPN 3D's domestic programming from Angel Stadium of Anaheim, which was the site for the launch of ESPN HD back on March 30, 2003,” said Bryan Burns, vice president, strategic business development, ESPN. “Seven years later, ESPN HD is available to virtually every multichannel video household in the United States, and we're hopeful that ESPN 3D will receive strong interest from sports fans and distributors plus consumer electronics manufacturers and retailers.”

“We are always looking for ways to augment the viewing experience for fans watching MLB telecasts,” said Chris Tully, Major League Baseball Senior Vice President, Broadcasting.  “The State Farm Home Run Derby is a unique event for a 3D telecast since it has all of the prestige of an MLB Jewel Event and the event’s format allows for more creativity in how it is shot for television.”

Additional schedule highlights for the new network include:

  • College basketball’s Old Spice Classic on Nov. 25-28
  • College football’s ACC Championship on Dec. 4
  • Jimmy V Classic on Dec. 7.
  • College basketball’s Big East Tournament, March 8-12, 2011

Previously announced events include the BCS National Championship game in Glendale, Ariz. on Jan. 11, X Games 16, college football and the NBA.  Additional events may be added at any time, however, it is estimated that the first year will include approximately 85 events.

ESPN has been testing ESPN 3D for more than three years.  In February, ESPN produced a 3D telecast of a Harlem Globetrotters game. In 2009, ESPN produced the USC vs. OSU college football game which was shown in select theaters as well as to 6,000 fans at the Galen Center on USC’s campus.  ESPN has developed best practices for utilizing the technology in live game applications which have provided the ability to streamline workflow operations, adjust 3D camera positioning, perform transmission tests and gauge fan reaction to a 3D telecast versus a traditional telecast.

Mike FlanaganMASN announced today that Mike Flanagan will join the Orioles broadcast team as a color analyst for the 2010 season. Flanagan will make his MASN debut in the broadcast booth for the Orioles game against the Oakland Athletics on April 15th.

Flanagan, 59, has spent more than thirty years with the Orioles as a player, coach, front office executive and broadcaster, and brings a comprehensive knowledge of the game of baseball and the Orioles franchise to the broadcast booth.

Drafted by Baltimore in 1973, Flanagan spent eighteen years in the Major Leagues, mostly with the Orioles. Flanagan was selected to the 1978 All Star team and earned the Cy Young Award for the American League in 1979. He was also an essential part of the 1983 World Series Champion team. After retiring in 1992, Flanagan served as a pitching coach and eventually a front office executive for the Orioles. He was inducted to the Orioles Hall of Fame in 1994.

His television career includes two stints in the broadcast booth, in 1996-1997 and from 1999-2002 when he provided game analysis for the Orioles television network.

"Having spent 34 years in the organization, I am looking forward to bringing my experience and perspective to Orioles fans throughout the region," said Flanagan. "I am excited about the club and think we are going in the right direction, and am equally excited to join MASN, which has quickly established itself as one of the leading regional sports networks in the country. It will be great to be back in the booth with Gary Thorne and Jim Hunter, and to be contributing my insights to MASN's first-rate production."

Flanagan will join Gary Thorne in the booth for approximately half of the Orioles games during the 2010 season, replacing Buck Martinez, who recently returned to the Toronto Blue Jays to try play-by-play for the team for whom he played, coached and broadcast for two decades. Hall of Fame pitcher Jim Palmer will continue to provide color commentary for the remaining Orioles games on MASN.

"As a former player, coach, front office executive, and broadcaster, Mike knows every aspect of the game and can provide a unique and comprehensive perspective to MASN's Orioles viewers," said MASN spokesman Todd Webster. "With more than three decades of experience with the Baltimore Orioles, Mike knows this team, this franchise and these fans better than anybody."
