ESPN Deportes secured exclusive rights via all means and media to winter-league baseball from the Venezuelan Professional Baseball League under terms of an agreement between ESPN and the league.
The Spanish-language networkwill air one regular-season game per week, along with exclusive rights to selected playoff games and exclusive coverage of the championship series.
The pact also covers ESPN Deportes’ multimedia assets, including ESPN Deportes Radio and ESPNdeportes.com (espndeportes.espn.go.com).
“Through this agreement, one network, ESPN Deportes, will now feature three of the four Caribbean winter leagues for fans in the United States,” general manager Lino Garcia said in a prepared statement.
