A RETURN TO NORMALCY AS MLB BEGINS TV NEGOTIATIONS?
Published October 13, 1995
MLB's TV committee is negotiating "with these three basic points in mind," according to Glenn Dickey of the S.F. CHRONICLE. No regionalization of broadcasts; returning game of the week telecasts; and starting weekend playoff games earlier to allow children to watch (S.F. CHRONICLE, 10/13). In Boston, Jack Craig reports that Fox reportedly would like to bring back the Saturday "Game of the Week" for afternoon telecasts, but "would insist" that there be no competition of local telecasts. Craig notes that a Fox deal would move all other games to Saturday nights (BOSTON GLOBE, 10/13). In San Jose, Colin Seymour writes that for "day games, networks and affiliates don't want any. Cable giants do ... ESPN would love to fill the daytime baseball void" (SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 10/13).
