The Reno Aces Baseball Club and my21 TV will feature an expanded, 13-game television package for the 2012 season, the organizations jointly announced today.
After debuting a limited, four-game television slate last season, the Aces will appear live in Northern Nevada 13 times this season, including all 11 Saturday home games and a pair of Thursday match-ups against the Fresno Grizzlies, Triple-A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants.
"As our fan base continues to grow, and we broaden the reach of our product, we're excited to take the next step in our partnership with my21 TV," said Aces Managing Partner Stuart Katzoff. "We're looking forward to bringing new elements and features in an expanded television package to viewers throughout Northern Nevada this season."
The slate kicks-off during Opening Weekend at Aces Ballpark on Saturday, April 7 vs. Colorado Springs, Triple-A affiliate of the Colorado Rockies. The schedule also includes a pair of games against inter-state rival Sacramento (April 21, July 28), a date with Silver State Diamond Challenge foe Las Vegas (June 30) and three contests against Fresno (June 28, Aug. 23, Aug. 25).
"my21 TV is very pleased to continue our partnership with the outstanding Reno Aces organization again this season," said Steve Cummings, Vice President and General Manager of Fox 11/my21 TV in Reno, Nev. "Our viewers truly enjoyed the Aces games that we aired in 2011. They've asked for more, and we're delivering. It's very exciting to be expanding our coverage to 13 Reno Aces games for Northern Nevada in 2012."
