1998 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.  New for this year:
links to the official team web site!!!

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 1998 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).

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


Thanks go to the following for contributing some info to fill in
the gaps:
