ELKVILLE, Ill. - In advance of its 10th season, the Prospect League unveiled the logo for its newest way for fans to watch games and stay in touch with their favorite teams, Prospect League TV (PLTV). The collegiate wood-bat circuit also laid out viewership packages available through the service.

The new logo will be used to promote the new service online, in print and at ballparks across the league.

It’s a large step forward for the league in terms of connecting our fans to our teams and players through technology,” said Jacob Wise, Prospect League media and technology director. “PLTV will certainly be something that elevates the profile of the Prospect League."
