CARBONDALE, Ill. - All of Southern Illinois University's non-conference home baseball games and selected away contests will be simulcast on the internet at WIDB.net and www.siusalukis.com.

WIDB will provide play-by-play and color commentary for each of SIU's non-conference home games, beginning Thursday when the Salukis host Central Michigan.

In addition to covering the Dawgs throughout their non-conference home season, WIDB will take to the road for six games, including four in San Antonio, Texas (Mar. 15-18), one at SE Missouri State (Apr. 5) and one at Saint Louis (Apr. 26 at GMC Stadium).

Chris Hagstrom will visit with Saluki head coach Dan Callahan prior to each broadcast, with a player interview to follow. WIDB will also name a Player-of-the-Game at the conclusion of each contest.

Fans are also encouraged to participate in a drawing for a special giveaway during each broadcast. WIDB will pick a name at random and the winner will be announced before each game. To enter, e-mail your name, address and telephone number to WIDBSports@comcast.net. The winner has five days to contact WIDB and claim their prize.
