Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming.

Specifically, the 2012 season of MLB PLAYER POLL educates young viewers on how the game of baseball is played and provides instructions regarding the techniques that successful players use. The show also gleans insight into players' preferences in areas outside of baseball with topics like "What Career Interests You After You Retire from Baseball?," or "What Is Your Favorite City To Play In?" or "What Player From History Would You Most Like To Watch/Play For/Play Against?" In addition, MLB PLAYER POLL provides examples of healthy debate, expressing an opinion using supporting evidence and analyzing statistics to confirm or refute a previous held belief. The results of the poll question that serves as the heart of each episode is represented graphically using traditional charts and graphs in a manner designed to help teenagers process similar information they will encounter in newspapers, magazines and textbooks. Finally, the emphasis on physical education in each episode of MLB PLAYER POLL will inspire young viewers to get off the couch, go outside and exercise. The program is regularly scheduled and airs between the hours of 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. The program is 30 minutes in length, and is identified as an educational and informational show, targeted to teens (13 to 16 year olds), at the beginning and through each broadcast and in listings provided to publishers of program guides.
