There are probably 10 colleges within 100 miles of Sarasota that have Media/Broadcast Journalism departments. Contact them, tell them you want them to produce daily reports about the Reds Spring Training including workouts and games.
They get full media credentials to include access to players and they agree to produce shows that will be provided to Reds at no cost to Reds. Reds can than market those shows to media outlets and or the internet.
Win/Win for all involved.
This is a good idea. I disagree the later post that Bud would object. I believe you're talking only about Reds coverage, not national coverage.
The biggest obstacles are quality control and set-in-their-ways organizations worrying about taking the risk.
How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids
