MLB Network Launch Liveblog

I have been liveblogging the historic launch of our MLB Network all day and night, so join us there and add some comments with your full URLs, like others did.

You might want to do the same, and if you are, please leave your full URL in comments here and on the liveblog itself. I first reported there that Bud Selig was going to deliver the historic “first pitch” and it has been everything I was hoping for and more. Having a blast watching the Don Larsen perfect game, and especially the Gillette commercials!

Mickey Mantle rocks! And I want that “fact-filled baseball encyclopedia absolutely free!”

What a day! Lots of great bowl games, but USC-Penn State is a dud so not really even going back and forth. Focused on Larsen. Cool to see Jackie playing third. You will probably be up in arms by the location of the final “strike” that sealed the perfecto. It’s an incredible event, some really cool new stuff here in the national pastime.

Back to my stories. Happy New Year!
