Petition: To get MLB Network to Caption their shows

Two days ago I was so excited to watch the first  yankee spring training game. The game was on MLB network.  I am a disappointed because MLB network doesn't provide closed captioning for the deaf. They are discriminating against the Deaf and hard of hearing. This is not fair because I couldn't even enjoy watching the game. What is the point of watching the game when I dont understand what is being said?  Everyone should be able to enjoy watching sports equally. There is no excuse.

I called MLB because I was so frustrated. Finally after 40 minutes someone picks up. The person said they filed the complaint and that she couldn't help, to "CALL MY CABLE PROVIDER". for the concerns. Meanwhile the commercials HAD CAPTIONS!!!! I knew it wasn't my TV or cable box because every other channel that I switched to had CAPTIONS! Theres no excuse.

So I decided to start a petition to get MLB to caption there network. I am asking you to take two seconds to please sign this for me.  I am aiming for over 1,000 signatures. Please send to family and friends. Your help is greatly appreciated.
