FloSports creates new baseball vertical

Texas-based sports streaming operator FloSports has created a new centralized platform for its baseball content where more than 700 collegiate and youth league games will be shown this upcoming season.

The new FloBaseball will pool FloSports’ varied base of baseball streaming rights, including several prominent college tournaments such as Frisco Classic, Round Rock Classic, and Kleberg Invitational. Also on the schedule are up to 230 games in the Big Ten conference baseball schedule that will include the University of Michigan, last year’s College World Series runner-up.

The company’s college baseball coverage will begin February 14 with the Sanderson Ford College Baseball Classic and Snowbird Baseball Classic.

FloBaseball joins a wide variety of other sport-specific verticals for FloSports, including FloWrestling, FloHoops, and FloGymnastics.

“FloBaseball will bridge the viewing gap between competitive youth, high school and collegiate baseball that has either been restricted to regional networks or unavailable altogether to baseball audiences,” said Mike Levy, FloSports vice president of global rights acquisition. “With the ongoing success of our other verticals, FloSports has proven that audiences are ready for sports programming that has been overlooked by major networks.”

FloSports operates on a subscription-based model, with pricing for many of its individual sports starting at around $12.50 per month.
