TBS Steps to the Plate with New Sunday MLB Package

TBS announced the first two months of its new baseball
“Sunday MLB on TBS” schedule for the 2008 season. The package, which
includes match-ups on TBS every Sunday afternoon throughout the regular season,
leads off with the defending World Champion Boston Red Sox facing the Toronto
Blue Jays on Sunday, April 6th at 1 p.m. ET. The network will also
exclusively televise the MLB All-Star Selection Show on Sunday, July 6th.
Additionally, beginning in October TBS will once again provide exclusive
coverage of the Division Series and, for the first time, exclusive coverage of
the American League Championship Series (ALCS).

TBS has broadcast MLB coverage for more than 30 years,
serving as the exclusive home of the MLB Division Series and the National
League Championship Series (NLCS) in 2007 and home of Atlanta Braves coverage
from 1977 to 2007.

“For the first time in Turner Sports’ 30-year history of MLB
coverage we’re proud to present an exciting weekly package that showcases some
of the top teams and players in baseball,” said Jeff Behnke, Turner Sports
executive producer. “Every Sunday afternoon for 26 straight weeks fans
will find key match-ups and marquee names as we follow the dramatic storylines
of the regular season leading into our second straight MLB Postseason on
TBS.”
