• NBC Sports and the Premier League are partnering to present their second Premier League Mornings Live, scheduled to take place in New York on Saturday, Dec. 8. The event will include a turf pitch, the Premier League trophy, club mascots and special guests. The initial fan fest in September was attended by more than 2,000 on a rooftop overlooking the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C.

• NBC Sports’ inaugural presentation of the IMSA SportsCar Championship begins Saturday, Jan. 26, 2019, with live coverage of the 57th Rolex 24 at Daytona (Daytona Beach, Fla.), as part of more than 100 hours of IMSA programming set to air across NBC, NBCSN, NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app throughout the upcoming 2019 season.

Forbes is reporting that the Seattle Mariners home stadium which has been known as Safeco Field since 1999, will be renamed via a new naming rights deal with T-Mobile beginning with the 2019 MLB season. The naming rights deal with Safeco Insurance — 20 years for $40 million — expired this past season and Safeco decided not to renew. The T-Mobile deal could be for upward of $6 million per year.

• Between now and Nov. 19, every use of #SaluteToService on Twitter will generate a $5 donation, up to $5 million, to the NFL’s military non-profit partners – including the Pat Tillman Foundation, TAPS, USO, Wounded Warrior Project and the Bob Woodruff Foundation.

YouTube TV, Hankook, Doosan Back For MLB Postseason, New Deals Expected

By Barry Janoff

August 2, 2018: MLB has released the schedule for the 2018 post-season, and there will be no November rain for the World Series (unless it rains a lot at the end of October).

YouTube TV returns as World Series presenting partner, with the 114th Fall Classic scheduled to begin Oct. 23, with Game 7 scheduled to be played Oct. 31.

The last time the World Series ended in October was in 2014 when the San Francisco Giants defeated the Kansas City Royals in seven games.

The post-season is scheduled to begin Oct. 2 with the National League Wild Card Game presented by Hankook on ESPN.

TBS will air the American League Wild Card Game presented by Hankoook Tire on Oct. 3.

Both NL Division Series presented by Doosan are scheduled to begin on Oct. 4 on FS1 or MLB Network.

Last year, Doosan presented both AL Division Series and T-Mobile presented the NL Division Series.

The AL Division Series, currently without a presenting partner, are scheduled to begin Oct. 5.

Last year, Camping World presented both the NL and AL Championship Series.

They, too, are currently without presenting partners.

MLB did not verify that new presenting partners would come on board but did say, “Like last year, more (deals) can always come up.”

Two travel days are built into the World Series, between Game 2 and Game 3, and if necessary between Game 5 and Game 6.

All World Series games will air on Fox.

The NL Wild Card Game will also be available on ESPN Radio, ESPN Deportes, ESPN Deportes Radio and the ESPN App.
 
ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball broadcast team — play-by-play commentator Matt Vasgersian, analysts Alex Rodriguez and Jessica Mendoza, and reporter Buster Olney — will culminate their first season together when they call the NL Wild Card Game.

The 2018 regular season is scheduled to end Sept. 30.

If necessary, regular season tie-breaker games would be telecast exclusively by ESPN on Oct. 1.

The NL Championship Series is scheduled to begin Oct. 12 on Fox or FS1.

The American League Championship Series, set to start on Saturday, October 13th, will be telecast by TBS.

Fox Sports will present live telecast coverage of the World Series for the 21st time.
 
All games telecast on MLB Network, TBS and Fox will be available to MLB.TV subscribers who are authenticated subscribers to the applicable network through a participating pay TV provider.
