So they launched the network by simulcasting ABC, eh?

 

Also, I had no idea that they paired the Brennamans up on ABC for this inaugural broadcast.

It wasn’t a standalone network in that sense. MLB basically bought the time on ABC and NBC for the games.

 

The Wiki entry explains it better than I can:

The Baseball Network launched with the 1994 All Star Game on NBC with ABC showing several regular season game thereafter. The strike hit before NBC could show any games. In 1995, ABC & NBC split the World Series. After the 1995 season, TBN was scrapped resulting in a new deal with FOX and NBC.
