The 2011 Major League Baseball playoff season is rapidly approaching and so is this special advertising opportunity. For those who are unfamiliar with how the MLB playoffs work, the Divisional Series features 8 teams – the 3 Division Champions each from the American League and National League, as well as 1 Wild Card winner from each league. The two winners from each Divisional Series will advance to the League Championship Series (LCS). The LCS winners from each league will then advance to the World Series.
TBS has exclusive coverage of all the Divisional Series match ups and the National League Championship Series. Your business can advertise with the first Division Series, featuring the Yankees and an unknown opponent, from October 6th to October 12th. In case of a shortened series, you will only be billed for the games played. You may also choose to advertise during the second, third or fourth Division Series. Lastly, your business can also advertise during the National League Championship Series from October 9th to October 17th.
