The 2006 NECBL season was notable as it was the first in which the entire league began live, video broadcasts of all games via Teamline. The Newport Gulls, as defending champions, had the first-ever live video webcast of a game on Opening Day, June 8, 2006. The Gulls walked off to win, 2-1, in 10 innings versus the Pittsfield Dukes. Under new team Director of Broadcast Operations Nicholas Lima, the Gulls broadcast team pioneered the first regular, multi-camera broadcast in league history, going on to win the Rhode Island PEG Award for Best Sports Program for their coverage of the June 8 game. Following the success of the Gulls multi-camera broadcasts, other teams would attempt to emulate the Gulls' production, including the Manchester Silkworms, Torrington Twisters and Keene Swamp Bats, as it became known for being the best in the NECBL.
