The NY Yankees once again changed their free TV home, jumping from WCBS-TV to local Fox O&O WWOR-TV in a multi-yr agreement OK’d by YES Net. Financials weren’t disclosed, although the rabbit ears crowd should be able to pick up around 21 Bombers games/year, mostly on Fri nights. Meanwhile, cross-town rivals the Amazins will televise 50 games on WPIX-TV this season, with that number dipping to 20-25 games once the Comcast-Time Warner Cable-backed Mets Net launches in ’06. Interestingly, before baseball became a staple of pay TV, new Yank outpost WWOR carried Mets games for 37 seasons until ’99, when the Bombers’ defection from WPIX made room for the Mets there.
