Less than a month after a bitter, public break with Major League Baseball, ABC sent letters this week to Fox, Turner Broadcasting System and possibly CBS telling them they are prohibited from contacting the league until as late as Jan. 14, Electronic Media reported. Fox, CBS and Turner have expressed interest in bidding on baseball rights. Turner is believed to want to pick up a portion of the network baseball schedule when The Baseball Network falls apart.
