Matadors clash with defending Region I Champion Central Arizona on radio, internet

Yuma, Arizona Ė April 4, 2013 -- Arizona Western College is proud to announce that AWC Baseballís doubleheader against Central Arizona College this Saturday, April 6th, will be broadcast by the Matador Sports Network. It will be the fifth consecutive year that MATSN will broadcast a Matador Baseball game, and both games of the ACCAC doubleheader will be broadcast live on the radio and internet audio legs of MATSN beginning a half-hour prior to the start of the first game. This will be the first of two Saturday afternoon MATSN broadcasts of AWCís spring sports during the month of April as the 2013 debut of Matador Softball on MATSN will happen on Saturday, April 27th.

The broadcast continues to signal the dedication by the Matador Sports Network, Matador Athletics, AWC TV Services and Arizona Western College to respond to the inquiries by the public to expand broadcast coverage of Matador Athletics. MATSN has broadcast extensive coverage of Matador Football and Matador Menís and Womenís Basketball for more than a decade. For the past eight years during the fall, MATSN has broadcast AWC Footballís full schedule on radio and internet audio (including the El Toro Bowl each of the past two seasons), and their entire home schedule on television; along with a selected Matador Soccer and Volleyball match. MATSN just completed their eighth season of full coverage of Matador Menís & Womenís Basketball, bringing fans all 22 menís-womenís basketball conference doubleheaders on radio and internet audio (plus the Region I Playoffs), and much of their 11-date home doubleheader schedule on TV. This is also the third year that MATSN has provided Matador fans with AWC TVís signal on the internet via the UStream app on IPhone, IPad, IPod, Android and Windows phone, as well as on the Matador Sports Network page on the AWC Athletics website for several Matador sports.

After getting a much-needed doubleheader sweep of South Mountain Community College, the Matadors come into Saturdayís doubleheader currently trailing those same Cougars by just two games for the 4th & final seed in the four-team Region I Playoff field; while Central Arizona will enter Saturdayís play tied with Cochise College atop the ACCAC Baseball Standings. Saturdayís broadcast will be broadcast live on radio by Yumaís news/talk powerhouse SportsRadio 560 KBLU, who is in its 14th year broadcasting AWC Athletics. Meanwhile, KBLUís internet site†will join the AWC Athletics website†to simulcast the baseball doubleheader broadcast as they have with all of the Matadorsí game broadcasts for the 2012-13 athletic season. The radio/internet broadcast will begin Saturday morning at 11:30AM with the Matador Baseball Pre-Game Show, with play-by-play man Jim Howell-the ĎVoice of the Matadorsí-hosting the broadcast and covering every pitch of the event. First pitch for the doubleheader is scheduled for noon. Under ACCAC rules, the first game of the doubleheader is scheduled for seven innings, with the nightcap scheduled for a nine-inning duration.
