Baseball Games On The Radio Are A Home Run



It's often said that there's something special about listening to​ the​ hometown broadcast of​ a​ baseball game on​ the​ radio. Now,​ no matter where they are,​ baseball fans can follow the​ fortunes of​ their favorite team.

Thanks to​ satellite radio,​ it's possible to​ listen to​ all the​ live-action coverage of​ the​ team of​ your choice,​ even if​ you are on​ the​ road or​ have moved far away from your hometown.

2006 marks the​ second year of​ an​ 11-year broadcast and marketing agreement between Major League Baseball (MLB) and XM,​ the​ official satellite radio network of​ MLB.

MLB games are carried live on​ XM channels 176 through 189,​ with Spanish play-by-play and call-in shows on​ MLB En Espanol (XM channel 190).

In addition to​ live game coverage,​ there is​ a​ varied menu of​ baseball-related feature programming available,​ such as​ Baseball Beat,​ a​ daily roundtable discussion with the​ top national and local baseball beat writers sharing the​ stories coming out of​ their city and teams.

For those in​ a​ fantasy league,​ Fantasy Focus,​ hosted by sportscaster Jeff Erickson,​ is​ a​ show with reviews of​ the​ best and worst fantasy players and advice to​ callers about how best to​ manage their teams.

Cal Ripken,​ Jr.,​ the​ legendary Baltimore Orioles shortstop and record holder for most consecutive games played,​ hosts an​ exclusive,​ weekly show called Ripken Baseball. From the​ major leagues to​ youth baseball,​ all topics are under discussion. Plus,​ listeners can e-mail questions.

It's even possible to​ start the​ day with a​ baseball-only show-Baseball This Morning. This news-magazine-style show features leading sportscaster Mark Patrick and veteran player,​ manager and broadcaster Buck Martinez with MLB news,​ scores,​ statistics,​ player information and a​ guide to​ upcoming games on​ XM.

Said Eric Logan,​ executive vice president of​ programming,​ XM Satellite Radio,​ "Baseball fans have grown up listening to​ games on​ the​ radio,​ and now we​ can hear games from all across the​ country whether we're in​ the​ car,​ at​ home or​ at​ the​ ballpark."
