MLB exclusive rights to Series Game on Saturday
Posted 2 October 2014 12:00 AM by Shentel
Veteran sports reporters Bob Costas and Harold Reynolds will be making the call as the MLB Network exclusively broadcasts Game Two of the National League Division Series 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 4 live from Dodger Stadium as the St. Louis Cardinals take on the Dodgers.
MLB Network will exclusively televise a second NLDS game on Monday, Oct. 6 between the Washington Nationals and the San Francisco Giants. The game will also be available nationwide and in each club’s home TV territory on MLB Network.
In each game telecast, MLB Network will employ its innovative real-time defensive alignment graphic “Shift Trax,” which debuted on MLB Network Showcase this season, as well as PITCHf/x, enhanced audio at each base, and 4K (Ultra HD) and X-Mo camera technology to provide dramatically increased resolution and clarity on replays.
MLB Network will also bring back new versions of its Emmy-nominated opener, “A Field of Dreamers,” and the Emmy-winning piece "The Scrapbook," which will air prior to both of its NLDS game telecasts. Using rotoscope technology, “A Field of Dreamers” brings players from Postseason teams, including Miguel Cabrera, Clayton Kershaw, Adam Jones and Andrew McCutchen, to life on the famous “Field of Dreams” baseball diamond. “The Scrapbook” creates an animated collection of iconic images from Postseasons past, updated to include David Ortiz’s grand slam from the 2013 ALCS between the Boston Red Sox and Detroit Tigers.
Exclusive performance footage of the song "Fire" by Grammy-nominated and multi-platinum selling recording artist Gavin DeGraw will be featured in all studio programming on MLB Network throughout the Postseason. The track is off DeGraw's album FINEST HOUR: THE BEST OF GAVIN DEGRAW, set to be released on Oct. 21 on RCA Records.
MLB Network will air 200 hours of live coverage of the 2014 Postseason, including game previews, highlights, analysis, interviews and press conferences across all studio programming. MLB Tonight will air before and after every Postseason game. MLB Network’s daily Postseason programming schedule, including High Heat with Christopher Russo presented by Liberty Mutual, The Rundown, Intentional Talk and MLB Now presented by the U.S. Army, and MLB Tonight, is available here.
MLB Network will keep its social media followers updated with the latest news, photos, quotes, interview clips and highlights using #MLBTonight, #Postseason and #WorldSeries through its presence on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Fans can also stay up to date by following MLB Network’s on-air personalities on Twitter.
