Saints in High Def During Playoff Push
ST. PAUL, MN (August 8, 2011) - The playoff push for the St. Paul Saints is heating up and fans can tune in on TV to check out two important games in High Definition as the Saints battle the Wichita Wingnuts.
The Wednesday, August 10 and Thursday, August 11 7:05 p.m. contests will be televised live in HD throughout the Twin Cities Metro Area on the Saints Cable Network, which are local cable access channels in and around the Twin Cities Metro Area. The list of channels in each area can be found on the Saints website at saintsbaseball.com.
CTN Studios, which has produced Saints games in previous years, will once again bring their Emmy Award winning coverage to the telecast. This is the first time Saints Baseball has been broadcast in HDTV.
"CTN Studios is very excited to televise the Saint Paul Saints baseball games again," said Production Manager Eric Strouse. "The local cable stations are also looking forward to carrying the games from all the feedback received. The viewers should also be very impressed with the sights and sounds of the cable telecasts. Since last season our primary mobile truck has been updated to full stunning High Definition. Even though these games will only be seen on cable in standard definition the new equipment will provide better pictures with more detail and bring fans closer to the action!"
For fans not living in the Twin Cities area the game can be streamed on line through saintsbaseball.com courtesy of iBN Sports. The Baseball Channel is one of the sports verticals within the network of iBN Sports. In 2011 IBN has covered nearly 500 Independent professional baseball games.
The broadcast team will consist of Director of Broadcasting Sean Aronson, along with Jeff O'Connor and Ross Hartman along with roving reporter Tori Holt. The game will be simulcast on Relevant Radio 1330, the radio home of the St. paul Saints.
