RENO, NV - For the first time in club history, four Reno Aces baseball games this summer will be televised live on my21 TV in Reno, the organization announced Thursday.
The partnership between the Aces and my21 TV was finalized this month, and the collaboration will give fans throughout the region the opportunity to see Aces baseball from the comfort of their homes.
“As our team continues to evolve and prosper, we are dedicated to finding new ways to entertain our ever-growing fan base,” said Aces Managing Partner Stuart Katzoff. “Broadcasting games on television is a logical next step for us, and my21 TV is the perfect fit. We’re excited to get our first broadcast on the air.”
The 2011 television lineup kicks-off on July 21, when the Aces take on the Fresno Grizzlies, Triple-A Affiliate of the San Francisco Giants. Later in the month, the broadcast will feature the Silver State Diamond Challenge on July 29, with the Aces battling the Las Vegas 51s. The schedule continues on Aug. 6, when Reno matches up with the Memphis Redbirds, Triple-A Affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals. The 2011 television slate will come to a close on Sept. 1 against Fresno—in a game that could potentially have major Pacific Coast League playoff implications.
“my21 TV is committed to bringing Northern Nevada local sports coverage,” said Vice President & General Manager of COX Media Group, Reno, Steve Cummings. “Our partnership with the Reno Aces will continue that commitment.”
The Voice of the Aces, Ryan Radtke, will handle play-by-play duties for each broadcast. my21 TV can be found over the air on channel 21.1, on cable channel 7, HD 721, as well as the Dish Network and DirectTV.
