Diamondbacks and Entravision sign three-year deal


The Arizona Diamondbacks, pending Major League Baseball approval, announced a three-year deal with Entravision Communications to air games in Spanish on ESPN Deportes 710 AM Phoenix, according to D-backs’ President & CEO Derrick Hall.

All 162 regular-season D-backs games will be broadcast, including additional Spring Training exhibition games that will be announced at a later date and any playoff games if the D-backs qualify for postseason play.

Oscar Soria, after serving as a D-backs broadcaster for the past 12 seasons and for the Hermosillo Naranjeros of the Mexican Winter League for the past 23 seasons, will again team up with longtime partners Miguel Quintana and Richard Saenz in the broadcast booth to describe the action in Spanish this season.

Chris Moncayo, GM of Entravision/Phoenix, says they will also promote the games via sister FM stations in the market, including La Tricolor 103.5 and Jose 106.9 and 107.1. The Arizona Cardinals are also entering their seventh season with ESPN 710.
