Cable Positive: Play Ball


Cable-industry AIDS-action organization Cable Positive will hold its 12th annual softball tournament Sunday, Sept. 19 at Dewitt Clinton Park in New York.

Teams from six cable networks -- A&E Network, Bravo, Court TV, Home Box Office, Lifetime Television and Showtime -- will participate.

HBO won its third consecutive Cable Positive tournament and its ninth in the 11 years of the competition in last year’s gathering.

“This is a showdown among leading cable networks to determine who really controls Sunday -- at least in softball,” Cable Positive CEO Steve Villano said in a prepared statement. “As far as Cable Positive is concerned, these networks are all champions in the fight against HIV/AIDS.”
