The countdown to the start of Major League Baseball’s 2017 season is on, and in anticipation of the season’s start, ESPN has announced one of the games to be featured on its weekly Sunday Night Basebal presented by Taco Belll broadcast schedule.
The Tigers and Rangers will face off on May 21 in an American League interdivisional matchup live on ESPN’s flagship MLB program. Coverage is set to begin at 8 p.m. EST. Dan Shulman will have the call for the game.
Shulman will be joined in the booth by analysts Jessica Mendoza and Aaron Boone. Reporter Buster Olney will also be on hand for the latest in-game interviews and news.
The Rangers’ May 21 road game against the Tigers will mark Texas’ first appearance on Sunday Night Baseball presented by Taco Bell for the season. Detroit will make another live appearance on Sunday Night Baseball presented by Taco Bell on July 9 against the 2016 American League Champion Cleveland Indians.
Those that won’t be near a television during either broadcast can still catch the games on the radio on ESPN Radio and ESPN Deportes Radio and online via WatchESPN and the ESPN app. Spanish-speaking audiences and fans in other nations can catch games on television via ESPN Deportes and ESPN International.
