FOX Saturday Baseball Game Of The Week Returns April 11

By Ryan

FOX returns with Major League Baseball regional action on April 11, opening its 14th season of carrying MLB. This season features a new start time — 4pm ET (except when games precede NASCAR races, see schedule below). This season also features new-look pregame and postgame shows, as Chris Rose brings fans late-breaking baseball news and notes and sets the scene for the day’s MLB action. Once the game begins, Rose joins the FOX broadcast team on location, serving as a field reporter.

Back for the 14th straight season is FOX’s top announcing crew of Joe Buck and Tim McCarver, with Ken Rosenthal reporting from the field. On the other crews, Mark Grace teams with play-by-play announcer Thom Brennaman, while Kenny Albert joins analyst Eric Karros in the booth.

Highlights of the season include the third regular-season game played at the new Yankee Stadium (April 18), baseball’s best rivalry between the Yankees and Red Sox (April 25), a game at the N.Y. Mets’ new Citi Field (June 20), the 80th All-Star game from Busch Stadium in St. Louis (July 14), and coverage of the AL Championship Series and World Series in October.

Full MLB on FOX schedule after the jump.

  1. I dont have cable TV and the yanks play a quite a bit, so I can be pretty happy…go yanks!

  2. Why is it all I get each week are Yankees or Mets games? My local Fox affiliate says they don’t get to choose which game they carry. So instead of regional games of Chicago, Cleveland, Cincinnati or St. Louis I get New York games. I live in Louisville, KY!

    Please Fox…let the local stations decide what they want.

  3. How are the games in your area chosen? The last two weeks I have Yankees, and I rather see Cubs! I live in Oregon, thought I should get to see the closer team.
