O'S AND TRIBE GO ONLINE TO INTERACT WITH FANS DURING GAMES

     Two regional sports channels are going online during their
baseball telecasts, following a similarly successful program
started by the A's broadcast partner, KRON-TV.  In Cleveland,
SportsChannel Ohio offered fans watching last Wednesday's
telecast of the Indians-Orioles game a chance to interact with
announcers John Saunders and Rick Manning on Prodigy.  The two
received more than 50 e-mail messages from fans, and the
broadcast team addressed more than a dozen on-air.  SportsChannel
Ohio hopes to go online for more future Indians home games
(SportsChannel Ohio).  In Baltimore and Washington, Home Team
Sports, a division of Prime, has announced that it will feature
announcers Jim Palmer and Mel Proctor in a forum on America
Online during Saturday's game against the Red Sox.  The
announcers will respond to online questions during inning breaks,
and AOL members will compete for prizes by answering Orioles
trivia (HTS).
