Fox, FS1 bring out-of-market streaming, new timeslots to MLB in 2014

A table of scheduled games and chart of teams by appearance is included in the article.

While Fox will still provide 12 regional split broadcasts in 2014, Fox Sports 1 will air a majority of the baseball. FS1 will air at least a game (and, in 10 weeks, a doubleheader) every Saturday of the season, plus a couple of midweek features. Fox will join for eight weeks of primetime coverage from May until July and then jump back in for the September pennant chase.

FS1 will also necessitate the return of Fox’s baseball studio coverage to Los Angeles, after a three-year stint in Secaucus, NJ with the MLB Network gang. It appears that Fox Sports Live anchor Ryan Field will host the new pregame show (which will air 30 minutes prior to FS1 going on the air), though Fox would not comment on the matter. One would think Fox Sports Live breakout star Gabe Kapler and recent hire Frank Thomas might play a role.
