2022 Miami Baseball Media Information & Policies

COVERING THE HURRICANES

Interview requests for Miami baseball student-athletes and coaches must be submitted to Josh White (joshwhite@miami.edu) in all instances.

The Miami communications staff will make every effort to schedule a time to accommodate those requests, based on time constraints and academic/meeting obligations.

MEDIA CREDENTIALS

Requests for working media and photo credentials should be submitted to Josh White (joshwhite@miami.edu) by sports editors or sports directors of accredited media. There are no season credentials for 2021-22. Credentials will be distributed on a single-game basis only.

Requests should be made as early as possible and should be limited to working media only. Requests made within two days of the game may not be considered. Media members may pick up their single-game credential at the box office window at the front of Alex Rodriguez Park.

HEALTH AND SAFETY PROTOCOLS

A mask must be worn at all times inside the pressbox unless actively eating or drinking. Media representatives must bring their own mask that fully covers their nose and mouth, plus any other personal protective equipment they wish to use.

LIVE BROADCASTS

It is not permissible for any non-rights holder to broadcast over the air, stream over the internet (audio or video), or transmit in any other way, any live event without the consent of the University of Miami athletics department.

Live events include varsity contests, press conferences (including but not limited to weekly scheduled and postgame press conferences) and any other group media availability. Exceptions may be made for any major news-breaking event. Failure to follow this policy will result in having credentials revoked.

POSTGAME INTERVIEWS

All postgame interviews will be conducted through Zoom. Head coach Gino DiMare and select student-athletes will be available as soon as possible following home games. Links for the video conference will be provided to approved media who request access from Josh White (joshwhite@miami.edu) prior to first pitch.

Should the visiting team decide to conduct a postgame press conference, a Zoom link will be distributed accordingly to approved media who request access.

Miami will not hold any postgame press conferences for road games in the 2022 season.

PARKING

Parking is available in the lots adjacent to Alex Rodriguez Park as well as on the street, via the PayByPhone app. There are no parking passes for Miami baseball games.

PHOTOGRAPHY

Miami follows NCAA and ACC rules regarding media representatives photographing games. Only properly credentialed photographers will be allowed in the designated photo areas at Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field as specified by the NCAA and ACC.

NO photographers will be permitted to shoot from inside the field of play. All photographers must remain in the designated photo areas outside of the field of play. Photo credentials are subject to revocation by the Miami athletics communications office at any time.

SCOUTS

Professional scouts may request credentials and are permitted to attend games. Approved individuals will be assigned a designated section and row to sit in. Scouts will be required to follow all of the same protocols as media members.

ARCHIVING OF EVENT AUDIO/VIDEO

It is not permissible for any non-rights holder to post, place, broadcast, or make available in any other way, audio or video event content that exceeds three (3) minutes in length. Events are defined as varsity contests, press conferences and any other group media availability. Archiving may not begin until the conclusion of the entire event. It is not permissible to reuse or post any video produced and/or owned by the University of Miami athletics department without the consent of the University.

UNAUTHORIZED CREDENTIAL USE

Credentials will be issued to working media only. Media credentials are not transferable and use by anyone other than members of the working media is unauthorized. Media credentials used in an unauthorized manner will be revoked immediately. Anyone allowing unauthorized individuals to use credentials will have their credentials revoked for the remainder of the year.
