Bats games on the Internets

A screen cap from yesterday's game. It's the Bats during the national anthem. I think that's Bubba, fourth from the left.

Yup, you can now watch Bats games on the Internets. I think they did some kind of renovation while the Bats were on that long road trip, to make room for a TV crew. From now on, all Bats home games can be viewed live on MiLB.TV. It's a subscription service, but very reasonably priced. $9.95 for the season lets you watch every Bats home game, with no blackout restrictions. (It's $29.95 if you want access to all the available minor league games. Blackout restrictions do apply to that package.)

And no, you don't have to watch the games live. They are archived a couple of hours after the game ends, and you can go back and watch them whenever you want.

Don't want to pay? Gameday Audio is free (registration required).

Of course, watching the Bats play will be far more appealing when Bubba's off the DL. The Bats played really early today. (11am - yikes!) The medical report during the game said Bubba was working diligently with the training staff, and they were hoping he'd be ready to play again in a couple of weeks. Yesterday, they said he was in good spirits - happy he wouldn't have to have surgery.

And speaking of the DL, Josh, blogging for Trent, reports that fifth starter Eric Milton has been put on the DL with an elbow strain. (Many suspect it's a phantom injury.) Rule 5 pick Jared Burton will take his roster spot (though probably not his place in the rotation).

You're welcome. I'll see if I can get another pic from tonight's game. They panned right past Bubba tonight, but the quality just isn't very good for these MiLB.TV videos.
