Here are a few more links for you tonight before I watch “Saving Grace” on TNT.
SI’s Richard Deitsch has a story on the San Francisco Giants announcers who have the potential to call Barry Bonds’ record breaking 756th home run. The best chances belong to Jon Miller on radio or TV or Duane Kuiper as both do the most innings on both media. But Dave Flemming, who was in the booth for Bonds’ 715th, but had a microphone problem, and Greg Papa are both long shots to call it.
From the excellent Biz of Baseball blog, Maury Brown writes that MLB has now set the rules for networks that can air game-in-progress highlights of Bonds’ record-tying and record breaking home runs.
The Boston Radio Watch blog writes about Entercom radio selling naming rights for the Boston Red Sox Radio Network to a well-known regional supermarket chain. And no, it’s not a first. CBS Radio sold naming rights to the Patriots Rock Radio Network and the Boston Bruins Radio Network (both TD Banknorth) two seasons ago.
If I find more links, I’ll post ‘em here.
