COX SPORTS TELEVISION ANNOUNCES NETWORK’S LARGEST LIVE MINOR LEAGUE BASEBALL SCHEDULE
NEW ORLEANS – The 2015 Cox Sports Television Baseball Road Trip has just made network history with the release of this summer’s Minor League Baseball Schedule. CST’s largest-ever schedule will include 37 teams, 30 games, two All Star games and one home run derby.
“We are both proud and excited to bring such a robust amount of high-level baseball to our Gulf South viewers,” stated CST head Rod Mickler. “By having the largest schedule in network history, we are able to flood the summer programming schedule with the nation’s national pastime.”
CST continues to be the regional sports network home of the New Orleans Zephyrs with five Pacific Coast League games during the 2015 season. The regular season begins on June 12, when the Z’s host the Omaha Storm Chasers at the Shrine on Airline. Zephyr fans can also see the two rivals meet up on July 2 in Omaha. The Zephyrs will also face the Iowa Cubs in their annual Fourth of July contest, along with hosting Colorado Springs twice. The AAA affiliate of the Miami Marlins is under the tutelage of second-year head coach Andy Haines.
The Southern League’s Pensacola Blue Wahoos are the Double-A farm team for the Cincinnati Reds. The Wahoos, who are co-owned by 2-time Masters Champion Bubba Watson, will host five games on CST this summer. Pensacola Bayfront Stadium will see the Jacksonville Suns (6/6), Mobile Bay Bears (6/20), Montgomery Biscuits (7/11), Biloxi Shuckers (7/25) and Birmingham Barons (8/9).
The Shuckers, Double-A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers, are entering their inaugural season on the Gulf Coast. Biloxi’s squad was located in Huntsville, Alabama, last season and finished with a 77-63 record and qualified for the MiLB postseason.
Since launch in 2002, CST has grown to nearly 5.5 million viewers, making it one of the fastest growing regional sports networks in the south. The GULF SOUTH SPORTS LEADER can be seen in California, Nevada, Idaho, Arizona, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Ohio, Virginia, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Georgia and Florida.
