Meanwhile, YES Network captured the two most prestigious team production awards at the dinner, wining the “Live Sports Event: Series” Emmy for its Yankees telecasts, and the “Live Sports Event: Program or Special” Emmy for its coverage of Derek Jeter’s 3000th hit game on July 9, 2011. YES won a total of five Emmy Awards, including “Technical Achievement” category for its use of its YES-MO camera which presents the clearest, most definitive replays within Yankees telecasts. YES’ Forbes SportsMoney show, co-produced in conjunction with Forbes magazine, won its first Emmy, in the “Business or Consumer: Program or Special” category.   YES’ fifth Emmy last night was for research, for Yankeeography, which is co-produced with MLB Productions.  Yankeeography has won 18 Emmy Awards since 2003.
