MLB NETWORK STUDIOS OPENS
SECAUCUS, N.J. — Major League Baseball has held the grand opening for its new television network studio in Secaucus. Known as the MLB Network, the all-baseball channel will operate out of MLB Network Studios, which is located within locally based Hartz Mountain Indutstries’ Harmon Cove industrial/flex development. The MLB leased 142,271 square feet from Hartz Mountain in 2008, and spent the year renovating the space to accommodate television production. Construction included two new studios and the conversion of the entire facility for hi-definition broadcasts. In addition, the street leading to the studio was recently designated MLB Network Plaza. The MLB Network officially launched on January 1 in 50 million homes.
