ESPN Deportes: WBC Championship Game Was Network’s Most-Watched Baseball Game Ever

Check out this blog by the Rebeldes over at Latino Rebels on how the World Baseball Classic Championship Game (Dominican Republic vs. Puerto Rico) was the most watched baseball game on ESPN Deportes by clicking here.

It is also interesting to note that during this series ESPN made history by running the simulcast of the ESPN Deportes Spanish-language coverage of an earlier game between the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico on the flagship network. It was the first time a sporting event was run not in English on a mainstream network. Unfortunately, it also arose some racist comments from the Twitterverse.
