COOKEVILLE, Tenn. --Tennessee Tech baseball and softball fans will have the opportunity to watch a combined 22 home games live via webstreams on the OVC Digital Network this spring, including 11 for each team. All of the webcasts will be produced by the Golden Eagle Sports Network, and can be seen around the world for free.
Golden Eagle baseball and softball webcasts on the OVCDN were introduced last year, and Tennessee Tech was among league leaders in production variety and viewership. Each webcast features multi-camera productions, instant replay, informative graphics and other special features including in-game interviews. TTU Sports Information Video Coordinator Matt Wagner serves as the director of each webcast, with production assistance from Andrew Neff and a handful of student assistants.
Dylan Vazzano will provide the on-air calls for all of the Golden Eagle baseball games, while action in the softball games will be relayed by veteran Roger Ealey. Some of the games will also feature play-by-play calls from Tim Scruggs and Rob Schabert, depending upon conflicts in scheduling.
Softball fans will get to view five doubleheaders during the OVC
schedule plus the Sunday tilt with Morehead State, for a total of
11 contests. The doubleheaders on the schedule are against SIU
Edwardsville (March 22), Eastern Illinois (March 23), Tennessee
State (April 12), Eastern Kentucky (April 26) and Morehead State
The same number of baseball games are schduled for webcasts, all single game dates for the Golden Eagles. The lineup includes two games against Miami (March 25-26), the complete three-game series with both Austin Peay (April 4-6) and Jacksonville State (April 17-19), and single games against Tennessee (April 8), Middle Tennessee (April 9) and Southeast Missouri (May 11).
The webstream schedule could be altered by weather conditions throughout the season. Updates will be posted on TTUsports.com.
The Golden Eagle Sports Network has already produced webcasts for the OVC Digital Network of nearly every home volleyball, soccer and basketball game this season, and worked with WCTE TV to place the station's broadcasts of football and select basketball games on the OVCDN. The weekly Watson Brown Show also aired on the league's digital network, along with other programming such as football signing day.
