Erin Andrews Will Be Taking You On A Tour Of Citi Field Tonight

Monday, April 13, 2009

ESPN will be airing the first two Mets games from their new digs at Citi Field, and not only will you be seeing the park for the first time, but Erin Andrews will be taking you on a tour of the digs. Oh and there will be a special Baseball Tonight from the stadium, which is sponsored by the new "Star Trek" movie. Via ESPN PR....

ESPN’s April 13 Monday Night Baseball telecast will feature the first regular-season game from Citi Field, the new home of the New York Mets, who host the San Diego Padres at 7 p.m. ET. Dan Shulman will call the game – also available in high definition on ESPN HD and via and ESPN Mobile TV – with analysts Orel Hershiser and Steve Phillips. During the game, reporter Erin Andrews will provide viewers a tour of the new ballpark.

The game will be available locally on ESPN in both team markets, co-existing with local coverage in New York and San Diego. In New York, the game will also be available on the ABC SuperSign in Times Square.

Additionally, Baseball Tonight presented by Star Trek – with host Karl Ravech and analysts Peter Gammons and John Kruk – will originate live from the ballpark for segments during the 6 p.m. edition of SportsCenter, along with a highlights, news and information show at 10 p.m.
I love seeing new stadiums, so having a tour is a great idea. Oh and having Erin Andrews conduct it isn't a bad idea either. Here is the rest of your national announcing schedule for the week (I'll have the weekend one up by Friday)....

"Baseball Tonight presented by Star Trek"

That is just awful. You don't HAVE to be a corporate shill.

Unrelated, but Mark "The Bird" Fidrych has been found dead at his home in Massachusetts of an apparent accident.

Just a sad day today.

Will be cool to hear Bob Costas on a baseball game again. He was fun to listen to, and it'll be good to get him out of the Sunday Night is Football Night studio with the nine million talking heads.

Hopefully ESPN will simulate a real tour of a facility so we can all stare at the tour guide's ass and not pay attention to a damn thing in the stadium.

Is it me, or did Baseball Tonight spend way too much time honoring the opening of this new stadium? They didn't give half the recognition a few years ago when the Cardinals open up their new stadium. A franchise, that has had much more success than the Mets both recently and overal. Maybe Citi is one of their sponsors.

Correct me if I'm wrong. April 15 is Jackie Robinson Day ...
So why are we being treated to San Diego and the Mets for the second time in three days?
Answer? ESPN isn't particularly familiar with or interested in West Coast baseball where, it just so happens, the Dodgers – yes, the same Dodgers for whom Jackie Robinson – are playing.
