Boston has three appearances scheduled for ESPN Sunday Night Baseball


While many Boston Red Sox fans may prefer to watch the team’s games on NESN, there are always a handful of games each season that end up getting pushed to ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball broadcast. It’s a near certainty that the Sox will be involved in multiple games late Sunday nights, with at least one of them certain to be against the New York Yankees.

ESPN released a partial schedule for their Sunday Night broadcasts and sure enough, Boston is schedule to appear in the weekend’s late game at least three times.

April 13th will mark the team’s first appearance of the year, as they visit (surprise!) the Yankees in New York. The following Sunday (April 20th) the Sox will host the Baltimore Orioles and on May 18th the team will host the Detroit Tigers.

Sox fans will also certainly notice a change in the ESPN booth this coming season. Orel Hershiser has stepped back from his duties with ESPN to join former Red Sox Nomar Garciaparra as the lead team for the Los Angeles Dodgers new broadcast network. Curt Schilling will reportedly step in to replace Hershiser alongside John Kruk and Dan Shulman.

ESPN has yet to announce their Sunday Night Baseball schedule beyond mid-July, but it’s safe to expect that there will be a few more appearances in the spotlight for this Boston team.

    Quick qu. Do you guys not have to one up other sources? Way I see it, yes you gotta report everything and so lots of sites report the same content. But this article seems way too similar to Buchanan’s article on OtM, posted before yours. Shouldn’t you check other sites before you post your articles? I like bosox n all but man if you’re not giving me anything new and just spieling the same stuff right after other places, why we gonna come and read it from you? I seen this happen with another few articles, and I let it go, but bosox is off its game. And that sucks. Just churning out same stuff when other places have beaten you to it.

      Matt, your point is taken and we’ll keep it in mind but I should mention that a story like this – while minor – is still worth covering and that is why you’ll see such repetition across multiple Sox-focused outlets. It’s not a matter of any of us copying eachother’s work and it certainly isn’t a race to see who can be first, but rather us all just trying to be thorough.

      We’ll be bringing plenty of original content this season and yes, the site’s going through some minor growing pains as we re-commit to our readers, so I encourage you not to give up on us just yet.
