MASN to broadcast 80 games in HD
MASN will televise every available Washington Nationals and
Baltimore Orioles game and for the 2008 season 80 games will be
in HD. The HD games will be evenly split between the Washington Nationals and
the Baltimore Orioles and will include the first home game for both teams. The
Bay on March 31 and the
Nationals’ are at home April 7 against the Florida Marlins.
MASN’s HD schedule includes key match-ups with the Yankees,
Mets, Red Sox, and Braves, as well as the Phillies, Dodgers, Cubs, Cardinals,
Marlins, and Rays. The network will provide HD telecasts for all six
inter-league games between the Nationals and Orioles.
MASN televised every available game of both the Nationals
and Orioles, becoming the first Regional Sports Network to carry 320 live
baseball games in a season. The network introduced game enhancements like
“Wireless Wednesday,” “Throwback Thursdays,” and in-game manager interviews. It
added sideline reporters and assembled an all-star broadcast team.
“The Nationals and Orioles are back, and MASN will be there
for every inning of every game. The network is proud of what we accomplished in
our first full year and we are excited to give fans maximum access to Nationals
and Orioles games in high definition this season,” said MASN spokesman Todd
