Northwoods League/Duluth Huskies Announce Streaming Rights Agreement with ESPN+
The Duluth Huskies announced via press release and live at their Hot Stove party at Wade Stadium, select games will be nationally available on the internet.
Greg Culver, General Manager for the Duluth Huskies went into detail at the party that select games will be available exclusively on ESPN+ streaming video and sound during the 2022 season, including the Northwoods League All-Star Game, the Major League Dreams Showcase, the Northwoods League Playoffs and Summer Collegiate World Series.
The Northwoods League has an excellent reputation for having talented players in the league and has always wanted an avenue to showcase the talent and attract players next season. This is the perfect platform to do so.
Every one of the players that have signed on to the Duluth Huskies said they did so because of the coaching and the reputation of the team and the league. John Lasker, VP of Digital Programming for ESPN+ says in the press release:
“We are excited for our agreement with the Northwoods League to begin later this month. Presenting this collegiate summer league makes a great addition to our already expansive collegiate and professional baseball programming on ESPN+.”
According to the Press Release for the Duluth Huskies, the Northwoods League has a four-camera HD setup in each ballpark and that is the equipment that will be utilized to show each game this summer.
The Duluth Huskies are two-time Northwoods League broadcasters of the year, so they are looking forward to reaching a bigger audience, and ready to work hard to three-peat and take home the hardware for this year as well.
The first broadcast will be on May 30th, and the first game for the Duluth Huskies is on May 31st away. The first home game on ESPN+ for the Duluth Huskies is June 4th. Here are the games on ESPN+ and the dates. More games are expected to be added.

I myself will try to catch as many games as possible because I go for the food and the game. Maybe just the food. The best hot dogs in the business. You can catch the pre-and post-show on the Duluth Huskies/Northwoods League Network.
