The minor league baseball LAKE COUNTY CAPTAINS are moving their flagship radio outlet to MEDIA ONE AC WREO (STAR 97.1)/ASHTABULA for the 2009 season. Select weekday day games will air on sister Sports WFUN (ESPN 970 AM), while former flagship SPIRIT BROADCASTING Talk WELW-A/WILLOUGHBY, OH will continue to broadcast the SOUTH ATLANTIC LEAGUE club's games as well.
"We are very excited about this new partnership and feel that our fans will benefit from the expanded signal coverage that STAR will bring to us," said CAPTAINS VP/GM BRAD SEYMOUR. "We look forward to teaming with MEDIA ONE GROUP and working toward building a long term partnership that will help grow our fan base and expand MEDIA ONE's visibility in our area."
"The LAKE COUNTY CAPTAINS are a class organization with a family-friendly entertainment venue offering competitive minor league baseball for the past six years," MEDIA ONE GROUP VP/GM DANA SCHULTE added. "Our new affiliation with the CAPTAINS will offer our LAKE, GEAUGA, CUYAHOGA and ASHTABULA COUNTY listeners and the CAPTAINS' continually growing fan base the opportunity to follow the Class A affiliate of the CLEVELAND INDIANS within a 100-mile radius."
The CAPTAINS' home opener this season is scheduled for APRIL 9 against HAGERSTOWN at CLASSIC PARK in EASTLAKE, OH.
