The first-ever live, interactive, video and audio telecast of a pro baseball game will be broadcast over the Internet on Monday at 1:30pm PT, when the AAA PCL Fresno Grizzlies host the Albuquerque Dukes. CA-based Computer Aided Technologies (CAT) and the Grizzlies are partners in the Intercast, which will be available to anyone with Netscape, AOL or Microsoft Web Browser software, and can be found at www.amintercast.com (CAT). CAT CEO Ed DeReyes said that he expects 15,000-20,000 people to watch the game online. Four cameras have been set up for the game, as well as chat areas for fans to interact with the announcers and other fans (Jon Swartz, S.F. CHRONICLE, 5/21).
