NEW YORK, March 28, 2011 - Major League Baseball and digital cable systems around the country shake off winter with the 2011 MLB EXTRA INNINGS package distributed nationally by iN DEMAND. With Opening Day coming early this year, the free preview will run for 11 days, from March 31 through April 10.
