QUEENS, N.Y. - As part of a production agreement with ESPN, the St. John's University Television Network (SJU-TV) will produce 16 Red Storm baseball home games this spring that will be carried live in H.D.-quality to more than 95 million homes on ESPN3.
"This agreement benefits our student-athletes as well as our fans and alumni around the country," said head coach Ed Blankmeyer. "The added exposure that our program receives through these ESPN3 games also helps our recruiting efforts."
A total of 32 live St. John's events will be produced by SJU-TV for ESPN3 in the spring season, including 16 baseball games, 12 softball games and four lacrosse games. Combined with 16 fall events and 15 winter events, SJU-TV will produce a total of 63 live events for ESPN3 by the end of the spring season.
SJU-TV live-game productions are four-camera H.D. broadcasts with full graphics integration, instant replay, and both a play-by-play announcer and color analyst. Each SJU-TV broadcast is crewed by a 15-person team consisting of local television professionals and St. John's undergraduate and graduate students that are enrolled in a video production course at the University.
