The Sin Bin is proud to announce new broadcasting partnerships with two teams in the Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL) and an expansion of our audio content. Beginning this weekend, the Birmingham Bulls and Macon Mayhem will air their home games on TheSinBin.net and The Sin Bin app for the remainder of the 2020-21 season.
“We are excited to add the Bulls and Mayhem to our game broadcast lineup, and are grateful to David Koonce, Dana Barker, and Shawn Bednard for their willingness to join us in bringing SPHL games to as many people as possible,” said Matthew Harding, Editor-in-Chief of TheSinBin.net. “In a year where getting games out to people who cannot be in arenas is crucial, The Sin Bin app serves as a way of helping teams to enhance their reach while bringing fans the action.”
Legendary play-by-play voice, Eli Gold, will call the action for the Birmingham Bulls, while Bednard will call Macon Mayhem games.
“In a time when having games accessible to our fans is more important than ever, the Mayhem are excited to partner with The Sin Bin to expand our broadcasts,” Bednard said. “With their synonymity with minor league hockey, we hope to welcome a new crop of Mayhem fans through our entertaining and engaging game commentary.”
In addition, The Sin Bin has entered into a content-sharing agreement with Field Pass Sports, a company based out of Birmingham, Alabama that works with NASCAR and other media outlets to bring sports fans across the south their latest news on their teams. As part of the agreement, previous episodes of the Into the Sin Bin and No Holden Back interview podcasts, ECHL-centric Three Periods Podcast, as well as the Monsters Musings podcasts (dedicated to the AHL’s Cleveland Monsters) will also air on the Field Pass Sports Network.
“We are excited to partner with The Sin Bin with this season,” Koonce said. “The Sin Bin is the leading source for minor league hockey news which makes it a great fit for the Field Pass Sports Network and the Birmingham Bulls.”
