“Sunday MLB on TBS” returns to Chicago on August 12 at 2 p.m. ET with a match-up of American League contenders featuring slugger Adam Dunn and the Chicago White Sox hosting Yoenis Cespedes and the Oakland A’s from U.S. Cellular Park. All-Star rookie Chris Sale (13-3) is scheduled to start for the White Sox against A’s probable starter Jarrod Parker (7-6). Calling the action will be Dick Stockton (play-by-play) and John Smoltz (analyst).
In October, TBS will exclusively televise the American League (AL) and National League (NL) Wild Card games and will once again provide coverage of all four MLB Division Series (DS) and exclusive coverage of the American League Championship Series (ALCS).
The network will announce future games on its schedule coinciding with its selection windows. The games included in the TBS MLB package will not be televised in the team’s home television territory.
TBS has broadcast MLB games for more than 30 years, serving as the exclusive home of the MLB Division Series (DS) and one League Championship Series (LCS) since 2007 and home of Atlanta Braves coverage from 1977 to 2007.
