T-Mobile Pitches, Wins MLB Business
T-Mobile USA, currently a sponsor of the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Seattle Mariners, now is the official wireless sponsor for Major League Baseball (MLB), which hasn’t partnered with a carrier in years. The multiyear, multimillion-dollar-partnership includes a new 4G on-field communication system connecting managers in select Major League dugouts to coaches in bullpens. MLB Advanced Media LP, which develops, deploys and distributes what is says is the top-ranked sports mobile application of all-time — MLB.com At Bat —will work with T-Mobile to create custom content exclusively for T-Mobile customers, and to develop promotional opportunities and offers for MLB.com content. It looks like a win/win for both teams, with MLB managers getting better wireless access and T-Mobile sports-hungry subs gaining more content—with the price TBD. In addition, the carrier will be the presenting sponsor of ESPN’s "Wednesday Night Baseball," including on-air, digital and mobile-sponsorship initiatives.
