Major League Baseball’s 2017 season is still at least five months away, but that doesn’t mean that there’s no action going on around the league right now.
ESPN announced Tuesday its flagship MLB program will hit the road next week for the league’s 2016 Baseball Winter Meetings. Baseball Tonight will air live Dec. 5 to Dec. 7 live from the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, MD.\
The half-hour broadcast will air at 6:30 p.m. and then again at midnight each day. The broadcasts will air live on ESPN2 except for Monday’s 6:30 p.m. broadcast. That broadcast will air live on ESPNEWS.
ESPN’s Baseball Tonight broadcast team—Karl Ravech, analyst Aaron Boone and ESPN MLB Insiders Aaron Boone and Tim kurkjian—will cover each day’s events. They will be joined by an extensive team of MLB Insiders and reporters including: Keith Law, Jason Stark, Jim Bowden, Jerry Crasnick, Jesse Rogers, Andrew Marchand, Scot Lauber, Adam Rubin, Eddie Matz, Mark Saxon, Doug Padilla and others.
As an added bonus for MLB fans, ESPN reporter Pedro Gomez will be on site through Dec. 8 with updates for SportsCenter, ESPN’s flagship sports newscast.
Baseball Tonight is available online on WatchESPN and the ESPN app.
Major League Baseball’s Winter Meetings are the largest annual gathering of baseball executives, staff, and media. They take place at the peak of Major League Baseball’s “Hot Stove,” when many trades and free agent signings are completed.
