Back in the day, even before there were RSNs and we were just talking about radio, the baseball teams divided the country by zip codes.


It would have been a little hard to divide the country by ZIP codes back in the days of radio -- they weren't introduced until the 1960s. :D The old way to do it was by counties.

I can take an educated guess on why those three teams claim Memphis: the Cardinals are the closest team, the Reds are in "the next state over" (in that the Cincinnati metro area extends into Kentucky)[*], and the Braves decided they were the official team of the entire South when they moved to Atlanta.

We are just a town in demand. :D I wish the Cubs would claim us.

I will sub once MLB starts. I enjoy watching the pre and post game shows combined with EI. And the joy of watching SNY after a tough Mets loss is...............priceless!!:hurah:


You read my mind.

I only subscribe to SportsPack in during the MLB season to compliment my MLB:EI. It's the only time I get any real value from it.

Oops, forgot about that footnote. I was going to write something about how back in the days when all this was set up, the Reds' flagship radio station WLW was the radio equivalent of a "superstation" -- very easy to receive at night in Memphis (and there was a time that the Reds played more night games than any other team). But I forget exactly what my point was.
