Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday is heading for the disabled list after being fracturing his right thumb in last night’s game against the Cubs.
Holliday was hit by a Mike Montgomery fastball. The Cardinals aren’t sure how long he’ll be out, but they only have 47 games left. As such, St. Louis will have to do without Holliday’s pop — he has 19 homers on the year — and instead run out combinations of Tommy Pham, Randal Grichuk and Jeremy Hazelbaker to cover for the seven time All-Star.
NEW YORK – Major League Baseball has sold its remaining share of a streaming service technology company to the Walt Disney Co. for $900 million.
The sale was disclosed Tuesday in Walt Disney Co.’s annual filing report through the SEC. MLB received the $900 million in exchange for the 15% stake it still had in a company called BAMTech, which originally started as MLB Advanced Media in 2000.
The technology helped MLB become a leader in sports streaming in the 2000s.
Walt Disney Co. has been buying chunks of BAMTech for the past five years and now owns 100% of the company. The National Hockey League sold its 10% share of BAMTech to Walt Disney Co. for a reported $350 million in 2021.
