1990 MLB Season

As originally written by Tim Brulia:

1990 opened up a brave new world in baseball telecasts.

Gone was the dual partnership of NBC and ABC. In was CBS, who paid Major League Baseball an amazing $1 billion over 4 years. CBS would sharply reduce the number of regular season games televised as they were mainly after the "crown jewels", the All-Star Game, the LCS and the World Series.

Almost lost amid the controversial CBS deal was the new 4 year pact ESPN signed with MLB. For the first time in 7 years, baseball had a cable pact. And it called for an astounding 150 games a season (6 games a week) package; a Sunday night exclusive game, a Tuesday night doubleheader, a Wednesday night game and a Friday night doubleheader.

CBS was to feature multi-tasking pro Brent Musburger to work with ABC transfer Tim McCarver on its A team. Stunningly, just before the season, and during the NCAA basketball championship tournament, Musburger was canned by CBS. Brent finished his Final Four duties and was gone. Jack Buck was called in from the proposed "B" team to fill the void and worked with McCarver. Dick Stockton then took over the "B" team play by play duties with Jim Kaat.

ESPN furnished a backup alternate feed for the markets involved in the non-Sunday main telecasts. Normally in a doubleheader situation if you saw the alternate first game, you would stay with the alternate nightcap game. So in essence, there were about 270 ESPN produced telecasts.

Note: I have not documented if they were any first games of doubleheader telecasts that went past the three hour mark, in which case second games would have been joined in progress (JIP). If anyone wishes to reasearch, please pass on and I will note the second game as (JIP). Thanks in advance.

The crews follow.
