A brand-new radio program dedicated to Mexican professional baseball will make its debut on Radio Miami International in August.

"Baseball Mexico" will air every Sunday on WRMI at 10:30AM Eastern time, beginning August 2. The program can be heard at 9955 kHz on the shortwave dial, or online via WRMI's live stream at the station's website ( WRMI is a 50,000-watt station based in South Florida, with a strong signal in the Eastern United States and Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean (although it has been heard regularly throughout the world).

BBM brings exclusive English-language radio coverage of the Mexican League, Mexican Pacific League, the Mexican National Team, and Mexican players in Major League Baseball. Each week, listeners will hear the top stories in Mexican baseball, in-depth coverage of Mexico's 24 pro baseball teams, and ongoing series related to the game south of the border.

The producer and host of Baseball Mexico is Bruce Baskin, a veteran sportswriter and broadcaster who wrote the popular "Viva Beisbol" online column between 2005 and 2007 (and more recently produced the "World Baseball Today" program on WRMI from November 2007 and July 2009).
