With Sunday afternoon’s game underway, Yankees Captain Derek Jeter has now played in 2,084 games tying him with Babe Ruth for fourth all-time in Yankees history.  Barring a career-ending injury in the next three seasons, Jeter will eventually be at the top of the list well before its time to retire.  He is also on pace to pass Yogi Berra by the end of this season and Lou Gehrig by the middle of the 2010 season and Mickey mantle by the end of 2011 season.

…the MLB Network launched yesterday with a Bud Selig address to nearly 50 million households, which was the largest ever in cable network history. After that, there were news segments, including the Hot Stove report, an inteview with J-Roll, and the actual perfect game from the 1956 World Series, including live commentary from Don Larsen and Yogi Berra.

The studio is located in the former MSNBC studios in Secaucus, N.J. It cost MLB an estimated $50 million to set up, including the hiring of the personnel for the network.

You can see a video of the studio or two photo galleries of the two studios that MLB will use.

I’m looking forward to getting the MLB Network on my cable. I just need to convince my wife it’s worth the money (and she’ll probably ask for the NFL Network as well).
