DIY NETWORK AND MLB NETWORK TEAM UP FOR A SPECIAL EPISODE OF "MEGA DENS" PREMIERING SUNDAY
NEW YORK - July 17, 2013 - DIY Network and MLB Network are partnering together for a special episode of Mega Dens where they create the ultimate Atlanta Braves rec-room for one lucky baseball fan. Premiering Sunday, July 21 at 8 p.m. ET, host Anitra Mecadon along with former Major League Baseball outfielder and MLB Network analyst Eric Byrnes take inspiration from the Braves' home ballpark, Turner Field, and transform the Gill family rec room into the ultimate Braves hangout.
The Mega Dens team envisions a swanky clubhouse with big-league touches for Paul, Lisa, Turner and Ethan. An artsy grid of official Rawlings baseballs, a wine-rack made from Louisville Slugger bats and the family's favorite team colors set the tone. Brothers Turner and Ethan go head-to-head in a painting competition that results in Byrnes taking the family on a special tour of Atlanta's Turner Field. While a few big surprises take this Major League makeover to home-run-status with the Gill family.
Starting in 2009, DIY Network and MLB Network partnered together for special episodes of DIY Network's popular series, including Yard War: Baseball in 2010, House Crashers in 2011, Desperate Landscapes and Man Caves in 2012, and currently Mega Dens in 2013.
