That's funny.  I remember years ago there would be some sort of plug if the home team hit a home run, and eventually for pitching changes, but I guess for "local" radio broadcasts they plug everything.  My older brother is a Yankees fan and in the era of Mantle and Maris, Mel Allen was the local TV broadcast announcer.  Ballantine Beer (then out of NJ) was their sponsor and every time a Yankee would hit a homer, Allen would say "There's another Ballantine blast!"  My brother told me that sometimes Allen would be on camera toasting and drinking a beer after a homer and back in those days NY hit a lot of homers, so it was always rumored that he was drunk by the end of a lot of those games.
 
Back then the sponsors ran the show. When Ernie Harwell was not renewed for Giants radio the Dodgers wouldn't hire him because he had the image of the Giant's beer sponsor, so he moved down to the Orioles radio.

There's an old New Yorker cartoon that shows a baseball outfield in the middle of a game. An ad on the interior of the outfield wall promotes the tailor Mo Heynman with the promise "Win a free suit when you hit this sign!"

Standing next to the outfielder and in front of the sign is a pudgy middle-aged man with glasses, desperately trying to wield a baseball glove.

Yep, me too back when George Kell and later, Ernie Harwell were the masters. As someone else mentioned the Tigers' radio announcers right now are a real challenge but once we get a major league team perhaps an upgrade there too?

YouTube has a game of the week, today it's Detroit @ Twins.
Cable cutters are starting to make an impact. Besides the YouTube game there is AppleTV Friday game of the week, Peacock Sunday morning game, etc.

Everyone is on FM now but over the decades I would listen to games after dark on AM and get the bounce from Boston, NY, Cincinnati, Cleveland, St Louis, Chicago so now I am in heaven.
I like the Giant's Miller, Cubs Sciambi, Guardian's Hamilton and despite all the criticisms I like John Sterling & Susan Waldman on the Yankees games.
The Tigers TV and radio people are the worst and no doubt the cheapest to employ, combine that with their play and it's just not listenable. 
 


I can still get KNBR San Francisco on the AM in older vehicles with real antennas. Denver's announcer Drew Goodman was unbearable but after *looks it up* 17 years either I'm used to him or he's gotten better. Some nights I can get 570 AM with Dodgers games and that was fun 20 years ago because a friend was the studio host back then, she'd do weather and traffic updates between innings. But I haven't had an AM radio with any oomph in about 20 years. Digital tuners don't do it.

I've definitely gotten used to Mike Krukow's not-quite-right sense of humor — it took a while. Duane Kuiper's such a great homer he loses his mind when a great play is made and is clearly disgusted when they're sucking. Then Krukow will at least try to put a positive spin on it. But if the other team makes a great defensive play, Kuiper's quick to praise it. He was a 2B so he appreciates those middle infielders. 

I like listening to Yankees games. I didn't know they weren't popular. One team I listened to a few weeks ago was amazing in how they weren't homers at all. It was like Joe Buck came to town and didn't care which team won. Bo-ring.

It's a great deal; I wish it would sync with the gameday animation because that's how I have to work it when the Giants are playing Denver... MLBtv blacks out the Rockies for me. Some people are blacked out for 3 or 4 teams though, so I guess it's okay. But yeah, listen to whatever whenever is cool.

Choose between the home team or visiting team's radio feed, in a lot of cases you have Spanish language too. 
I listen to the radio feed of the Tigers' opponent when watching the games on TV, I've gotten good at synching up the two with the pop of the catcher's mitt.
Another bad one for the local Kitties but I enjoy baseball on the radio from all over the country.
I have some favorite announcers and teams so it's nice to have baseball without the panicked fan attitude.

Yup won 9 out of 12 but still no 1st baseman or a closer. And 2 games out of the wildcard spot. I’m holding onto the bumper of the bandwagon with my bloody fingers.

I do almost all of my baseball on the radio anymore.  I actually prefer it anymore.  It's still difficult hearing "The Guardians" instead of the Indians.  The graphics grate when I see them.  

Oh well.  The old clock radio on the headboard is tuned to the channel all the time so it is what ever is on, is on.  If it wasn't, I might not hear another game and just let it fade away, not missed.

Sigh.
