THE BASEBALL NETWORK'S FATE REMAINS UNCLEAR
Published September 13, 1994
According to the latest issue of ADVERTISING AGE: "If its rookie season is washed out, The Baseball Network will refund advertisers or provide them with make-goods on ABC and NBC. One Baseball Network exec said if the season is cancelled, TBN won't make a two-year sale of $330M and owners will likely decide its fate at their winter meetings." AD AGE also reports Gillette will hold the finals of its "$1 Million Home Run Challenge" sweepstakes in an empty stadium if there is no World Series (9/12 issue).
