Major League Baseball’s 2016 season is almost halfway over. And with the All-Star Break just around the corner, Turner Broadcasting has announced the upcoming return of its weekly MLB broadcast Sunday MLB on TBS.
Sunday MLB on TBS makes its annual return on Sunday, July 10th. That is only two weeks away. The network’s annual Sunday night MLB broadcast makes its 2016 debut with a matchup between the Washington Nationals and the defending National League Champion New York Mets. Coverage of the game is currently expected to begin at 1pm ET. Three-time Sports Emmy Award®- winning commentator Ernie Johnson will have the call for the game. He will be joined by MLB on TBS analyst Ron Darling.
Week two of Sunday MLB on TBS will feature a cross-conference matchup between two of the league’s top teams, the Chicago Cubs and Texas Rangers. Coverage is currently expected to begin at 2pm ET and will be shown locally in Texas. Brian Anderson will be in the booth for the game. He will be joined by MLB Hall of Famer Cal Ripken, Jr. for additional commentary.
These are just a pair of games currently set for TBS’ 2016 Sunday MLB on TBS schedule. This year marks TBS’ 9th consecutive year of live MLB regular season coverage. Including the games scheduled for July 10th and 17th, Sunday MLB on TBS is set to feature a total of 13 regular season afternoon telecasts along with an equally extensive post season schedule. That schedule includes the presentation of the American League Wild Card Game, and both the ALDS and NLDS.
