Ask anyone that works in the sport and they’ll tell you, baseball season never ends. And while most think that planning and moves for the following season all begin when the World Series ends, guess again. How your favorite team performs in not only the coming season, but several in front of that are often formulated years in advance. So, maybe it’s no surprise that current Los Angeles Dodgers senior adviser to the president and former general manager Ned Colletti is looking to stay busy.
Riding a wave of exciting postseason play, new stars, and collaborative structure at the business level, Major League Baseball ended its 2017 season with a +12% increase in sponsorship revenues year-over-year compared to 2016. Sources at the league indicated that it’s possible that the figure could increase slightly when they close out their books on the season. Major League Baseball secured eight new significant sponsorship partners this year.
It has been a heck of a run for Major League Baseball over the past few years. Yes, attendance dipped slightly this year, but ratings at the local and national level have been up. While the numbers have not yet been released, it seems certain that the league will (once again) post record revenues. Don’t believe me? Look at just the growth in sponsorship revenues. How the league has benefited comes largely from a good regular season, but more so from the excitement in recent postseasons.
AC/DC has sold over 200 million records. It’s a testament to what happens when you tie the blues to hard rock and punk. Style changed slightly over the years, but the basis has been the same. That’s all largely due to Malcolm Young. He was the driving force. Angus the showman.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
