MLB Network is going all in for the first month of the 2011 regular season with a live game every day in April. I find that very cool, of course. So the games begin tomorrow and then on Friday, the regular season really kicks off. We have the press release plus the entire game schedule for MLB Network. For all of the games, local blackout rules apply.
MLB Network’s 30 Games, 30 Clubs, 30 Days, a package of 30 live games featuring all 30 clubs in the month of April, begins this Friday, April 1 with the Seattle Mariners visiting the Oakland Athletics at 10:00 p.m. ET. Viewers in select markets will see a matchup between the 2010 World Series champion San Francisco Giants and NL West rival Los Angeles Dodgers live at 10:00 p.m. ET from Dodger Stadium.
MLB Network’s first produced game telecast of 2011 will feature the Boston Red Sox hosting the New York Yankees on Friday, April 8 at 2:00 p.m. ET with MLB Network’s Bob Costas and Jim Kaat calling the game live from Fenway Park.
The complete 30 Games, 30 Clubs, 30 Days schedule is available below. Games will be blacked out in each team’s home television territory unless otherwise announced. Viewers in areas subject to blackouts will be provided with an alternate game telecast or other programming.
