Rascals Games May Be Shown on Cable Station

St. Louis Post Dispatch

O’FALLON, MO. — The River City Rascals hope to score big on the city’s public cable television station.  The minor league baseball team, which plays in the city’s T.R. Hughes Ballpark, has asked permission to televise its home games live on local Charter Cable Communication’s Channel 21. Officials expect to pass a resolution approving the arrangement before opening day on May 25. The city anticipates offering the airtime free of charge.

Under the proposal, the franchise would provide its own cameras and broadcast personnel. At times when the city televises its meetings live, the team will show replays later or cut into games in progress, City Administrator Robert Lowery Jr. said. —>
