2000 Major League Baseball Media Guide

by Robert Smathers (roberts@nmia.com)

This is a guide to media outlets (flagship radio and television
stations) for the 30 Major League Baseball teams.

Information has been compiled from major league teams' public
relations departments and from broadcasters.  Any missing information
is due to the fact I have not been able to verify correct information
for the 2000 season, the team or broadcaster has not answered my
inquiry,  or I'm missing some more specific info (i.e. the
number of games broadcast by a specific broadcaster).

New for 2000, I have added a column for the year that the broadcast
rights end.  If I can find the info in a press release, in a newspaper or
magazine article, or if someone emails me with information they know,
it will be added to this column.  Think of it as a "Broadcast rights
end after the xxxx MLB season".  If the column is blank, no information
was found about when the rights end.

If you can help fill in the gaps, please email me at roberts@nmia.com.

Thanks to the following for submitting info:
