Hispanic net secures Texas Rangers for four years


Spanish Beisbol Network has a new contract that will allow it to carry the MLB games of the Texas Rangers for four years beginning in 2010, joining six other teams in the company’s major league portfolio.

The games will be heard in the team’s home Dallas-Ft. Worth market over Univision’s KFLC 1270.

SBN claims contracts with the Boston Red Sox, Philadelphia Phillies, Washington Nationals, Oakland Athletics, Los Angeles Angels, and CBS and the New York Yankees, plus it has rights to the Caribbean World Series. It has additional relationships with other major league teams.

“This announcement represents a milestone for the Texas Rangers,” said John Blake, Rangers executive vice president of communications.  “The partnership with SBN allows us to upgrade and expand the products and services we offer our Hispanic fans and sponsors. Our Spanish-speaking fans have provided tremendous support and loyalty over the years, and it gives us great pleasure to continue to serve this valued audience.”
