Fox Sports 1 will be the new home of Major League baseball’s Game of the Week at least until May. We have double header action to start the season starting at 12:30 p.m. Pregame: Host Kevin Burkhardt welcomes baseball fans into a new era for America’s newest 24-hour sports network as MLB games come to FOX Sports 1 for the first time ever.
Burkhardt is joined by MLB on FOX Sports 1 analyst and World Series Champion Gabe Kapler and MLB Hall of Famer Frank Thomas to preview the upcoming day’s action. FOX Sports 1 delivers fans two exciting matchups this Saturday.
Minnesota Twins at the Cleveland Indians with the broadcast team of Thom Brennaman and Eric Karros handling the duties for the 1 p.m. ET opener. Then we go out west for a big time rivalry game between the San Francisco Giants visiting the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The new broadcast crew of Joe Buck, Harold Reynolds and Tom Verducci will make their debut at the 4 p.m. ET game from Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles.
What The Analysts Are Saying: MLB on FOX game analyst Harold Reynolds joined The Dan Patrick Show earlier this week. Reynolds on which team he believes is the best in baseball: “I know a lot of people say the Dodgers, but the Nationals are loaded this year. If they get (pitcher) Doug Fister back healthy, that’s the team to beat right now.”
