New York Yankees Are Good For Business

By

Yankees Are a Ratings Dream: “Game 6 of the 2010 ALCS registered 11.86 million viewers making it the second most-viewed baseball game ever on cable television beating the game where Mark McGwire tied Roger Maris for the most home runs in a season on ESPN on September 7, 1998 (10.62 million viewers). Only the 2008 ALCS Game 7 between the Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays registered more viewers (13.36 million) on cable.” It’s too bad for Major League Baseball that the Yankees won’t be partaking in further postseason festivities. Expect a similar number of viewers for the World Series despite the fact it’s being broadcast on network television rather than TBS. If you still feel strongly about seeing the Yankees in the World Series, please write a passionate letter to your local Senator. [LoHud; photo via Getty]
