WACO, Texas - For the first time, collegiate baseball fans will be able to watch live streaming video (complete with audio of the Bears' broadcast) from Baylor Ballpark. Saturday's Baylor baseball game against Kansas State (game one of the doubleheader) will be streamed over the internet at BaylorTV.com and BaylorBears.com.
This full video event is being created for those with high speed Internet access. Those with dial-up access are encouraged to listen to the regular radio broadcast.
Bryan Bray and the BaylorVision crew are working to bring five cameras to the Ballpark just for this game, and Baylor ITS is working to get the streaming services set up. The video with be merged with the Baylor radio broadcast to create the production.
This production is a test/prototype and will help us determine if we will be able to do this on a regular basis in the future. Special thanks to Baylor's ITS department and KWBU, as both areas are donating their time and money in this effort.
Baylor hopes to be able to offer live video on a regular basis in the future. To support this effort, we are asking everyone that watches the event to fill out a survey afterwards to help us evaluate our effort. For those in the Waco area or that can get to Waco, please get out to the Ballpark and help us get the series off to a great start. For those who can't make it to the game on Friday, tune in to BaylorTV.com or BaylorBears.com.
