July 7, 2008 at 10:23 AM (PT)
XM SATELLITE RADIO's MLB Home Plate channel (XM 175) is offering blanket coverage of major league baseball's all-star weekend from its home bases at FanFest at YANKEE STADIUM, and the XM studios at JAZZ AT LINCOLN CENTER JULY 12-16th. It will air the All-Star Game, the Home Run Derby, and exclusive radio coverage of the XM All-Star Futures Game, featuring the top minor-league prospects from the U.S. and abroad.
"The All-Star Game this year is especially historic because it's the last one to be played on the most hallowed ground in baseball," XM EVP/Programming ERIC LOGAN said. "We will have wall-to-wall coverage of All-Star events in NEW YORK for five days straight. It's all part of our mission to bring every MLB game to millions of listeners across the country."
