THE FINAL COUNTDOWN: To celebrate its 25th season of "Sunday Night Baseball," ESPN will turn "Baseball Tonight" into a pregame show. The net will rebrand its Sunday show as "Baseball Tonight Sunday Night Countdown" and will travel to the site of most Sunday night games. That move makes the show similar to ESPN's popular pregame shows associated with the NFL ("NFL Countdown") and the NBA ("NBA Countdown"). In another nod to its 25th season covering the sport, ESPN has produced a series of vignettes that will focus on the franchises best on-field moments over the past 25 years.
