BELLEVUE, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Snag some peanuts and Cracker Jacks and get ready! T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) today announced Beyond the Bases, a brand-new video series with the biggest names in baseball sitting down for in-depth interviews with Bleacher Report’s Taylor Rooks. In the first episode, Rooks will be joined by All-Star first baseman and 2019 T-Mobile Home Run Derby Champion Pete Alonso, airing Tuesday, September 15 at 12 p.m. PT on T-MobileBeyondtheBases.com and available on demand afterwards. Upcoming guests include Didi Gregorious, Dansby Swanson, Luke Voit and other stars, every week through Tuesday, November 10. And when fans tune in, they’ll have a chance to win a trip to MLB All-Star week next year, with VIP access!
“This season is unlike any other, and we know how much fans are missing cheering on their favorite players at the ballpark, so we’re bringing their favorite players to them … virtually!” said Mike Sievert, CEO of T-Mobile. “We started this season with free MLB.TV for T-Mobile and legacy Sprint customers, and now with Beyond the Bases, we’ll bring even more baseball to the fans — ALL the fans — because everyone deserves to enjoy this sport, ballpark or no ballpark.”
Each episode of Beyond the Bases brings fans closer to their favorite baseball stars, serving players’ personal stories, little-known facts on their outside passions and personal interests. And, it’s for a great cause — players will take on a series of trivia questions to raise up to $10,000 in donations per episode from the Un-carrier for the T-Mobile Little League® Call-Up Grant Program, which helps cover Little League Baseball and Softball registration fees for kids in need around the country. Little Leaguers® will also join in on the fun and get the chance to ask their own questions to the MLB players each week!
“A major sports fan myself, I’m thrilled to team up with T-Mobile and give fans the chance to connect with their favorite MLB players,” said Taylor Rooks. “We’re going to have a blast — and raise some big bucks for the future Little Leaguers of America while we’re at it!”
