Extra Innings gives you exclusive behind-the-scenes looks and commentary on MarketScale’s Welcome to the Show, a reality television series that follows the Savannah Bananas, the collegiate summer league baseball team that is changing the sport with their brand of Fan-First Entertainment. On this episode, we chat with Zach Brockman, general manager of the Modesto Nuts, the California League Affiliate of the Seattle Mariners.

He gives us his thoughts on the first two episodes of show, the importance of staying consistently unpredictable, and how team-building and team culture are both the hardest and most important part of a successful minor league baseball team. He also gives some insight on what the Modesto Nuts are doing to further fan-first entertainment, and what he’d like to implement to his team from the Savannah Bananas.

Be sure to watch Welcome to the Show episodes one and two, and stay tuned for the grand finale in episode three, coming this week only on MarketScale.
