HarbourCats Games Available On CFUV



VICTORIA, B.C. – For those who love the old-time baseball tradition of
radio play-by-play, the Victoria HarbourCats have found a place on the dial. They’ve also found a way onto your computer or smart-TV screen. With the season set to start tonight, the HarbourCats are excited to announce the broadcasting plan for the 2014 campaign, and it covers the spectrum. *CFUV*, Victoria’s campus and community radio station located at 101.9FM and on-line at *cfuv.uvic.ca <http://cfuv.uvic.ca>*, will air four games this season, starting with the June 10 home opener. Jordan Smith, the voice of HarbourCats games on-line, will provide the play-by-play action for all the games, including the first-ever visit to Victoria by the Cowlitz Black Bears. Game dates to be broadcast on CFUV 101.9FM (all home games): *Tuesday, June 10* – 7pm, vs. Cowlitz Black Bears *Tuesday, June 24* – 7pm vs. Bend Elks *Thursday, July 10* – 7pm vs. Medford Rogues *Thursday, July 17* – 7pm vs. Klamath Falls Gems “We are pleased to work with CFUV – Program Director Johnnie Regaldo and Station Manager Randy Gelling have been tremendous to work with, and we look forward to this partnership,” said HarbourCats General Manager Jim Swanson. “This step forward and our on-line streaming options allow anyone, anywhere, to listen in or watch the games live or archived, and never miss a play. The HarbourCats have a strong following and this will help our fans keep close tabs on what is happening with the team on the field.” In addition, fans will be able to listen to Jordan Smith’s call while at Sports Traders Diamond at Royal Athletic Park. Teaming with *Pacific Audio Works*, a localized FM transmitter will allow spectators to find 88.3FM for all home games, and hear the same presentation as will be on CFUV and the streaming audio/video. The on-line offering is being presented by *PlayFullScreen.com*, a Vancouver-based service provider. The on-line streaming offering for 2014 includes two options – listen for free through your computer to all 59 games (57 in regular season, and the exhibition games for Baseball Day in Victoria and Baseball Day in Duncan, June 21 and 22 respectively), or click on the pay-per-view video option and follow that process. For home games, that will mean a multi-camera broadcast, and road games will also be streamed live over the internet. The audio-only option is free to all listeners, while pay-per-view rates are $8 per game and a 5-pack for $35. For $4, you can get 48 hours of access to a single archived game. “This will allow us to better provide coverage to our fans not just in Victoria, but to those who watch the progress of our team and our players across North America,” said Swanson. “We will be able to look at video highlight packages, particularly from road games, so our Victoria fans will have an even better sense of how our team is doing. Combining all these broadcast and on-line options is a progressive move for the Victoria HarbourCats, and we hope our fans take full advantage.”
