Higher quality broadcasts and increased international exposure highlight the 2018/19 Australian Baseball League broadcast schedule.

The ABL has committed to broadcasting a minimum of 81 LIVE games plus all ABL Playoff games across a combination of key domestic and international broadcast partners including;

  • ABLtv.com
  • Fox Sports Australia*
  • MBC Sports Plus (Korea)
  • Eleven Sports (Taiwan)
  • Sky New Zealand

Baseball Australia chief executive officer Cam Vale said the history-making broadcast schedule will continue the league's international growth.

"We saw a significant spike in international viewership during the 2017/18 season," Vale said.

"With two expansion teams, more superstar players and an ever-growing list of international partnerships, there is more interest in the ABL than ever before.

"We're excited to showcase our league to the world."

During the 2017/18 ABL season live broadcasts via www.ABLtv.com and Facebook Live reached over six million people.

Vale said the new broadcast partnerships would help deliver more record-breaking numbers.

"This season's broadcast schedule will see Australian baseball beamed into more homes around the world across a variety of channels."

"We are looking forward to helping Baseball Australia develop and grow its broadcast product," Watson said.

"The additions of Geelong-Korea and the Auckland Tuatara will make the league an even more exciting product to cover and we can't wait to bring higher quality broadcasts to ABL fans worldwide."
