MLB Opens Its 15,000-Square-Foot Fan Cave Today In Manhattan
The MLB Fan Cave opens today in N.Y. at the site of the former Tower Records, a 15,000-square-foot space at the corner of Broadway and 4th Street. MLB has populated the Fan Cave with two young males who will watch all 2,430 MLB games this season and share their thoughts on Facebook, Twitter, MLB.com, and make MLB Network appearances. All that media socializing will be done in an environment transparent enough that it is behind 32 windows, each 14 feet high. The Fan Cave will also be featured in a web series at MLBFanCave.com.
Visits by MLB players and celebs are planned, along with parties, and musical performances. In between, the guys can watch every MLB game on 15 Sony televisions -- three 60-inch screens surrounded by a dozen 32-inch TVs.
