Major League Baseball broadcast schedules for 2022 season

Major League Baseball broadcast schedules for 2022 season

If the lockout proved anything, baseball fans want baseball!

Half of spring training was canceled, and the regular season will get underway about a week late, but 162 games are promised.

The New York Mets and New York Yankees return to their usual broadcast outlets: SNY, YES Network, WPIX-11, WCBS 880-AM and WFAN 660-AM and 101.9-FM.

Fox Sports (aired on WNYW-5 in New York market) will have its usual Saturday game of the week at 7:15 p.m. starting in June. Cable channel Fox Sports 1 will have a slate of games on Saturdays and some weeknights. ESPN has reduced its slate of games, sticking to Sunday nights and occasional weeknights.

MLB Network will continue to air home-game telecasts that don’t fall within a national network broadcast window.

There will be new options to watch games this season.

Turner Sports will present a new Tuesday night slate on TBS, getting rid of its Sunday afternoon package.

AppleTV+ has joined the mix and will broadcast Friday night doubleheaders on its subscription service – it is expected the early part of the Apple schedule will be available for free as an enticement.

Subscription service MLB.tv will provide every TV and radio broadcast for all Major League teams.

New York Yankees

The Yankees return to YES Network for the 21st year in a row. However, the free telecasts that used to air on WPIX-11 (since 2015) will now be aired on Amazon Prime Video, per reports – those 21 games will be primarily Friday night contests. Michael Kay has been the lead play-by-play man since the network’s inception (joining John Sterling for the 10 years preceding on WABC radio). Ken Singleton retired at the end of 2021 after calling games since 1997. Fishkill native Ryan Ruocco will fill in for the eighth consecutive year.

The cast of TV analysts currently has Paul O’Neill (since 2002), John Flaherty (since 2006) and David Cone (since 2008). Recently retired Cameron Maybin will make his debut.

Radio powerhouse WFAN (660-AM, 101.9-FM) will be the flagship station for the ninth consecutive year. Sterling will begin his 33rd season as lead radio voice; Suzyn Waldman has been at his side since 2005. After a couple seasons of calling road games remotely from New York, Sterling and Waldman will be traveling to away contests.

Local radio stations WGNY (1220-AM), Oldies 105.3-FM and Cpuntry 94.5-FM will also carry games.

New York Mets

The Mets return to SportsNet New York (SNY) for the 17th year in a row, with a number of telecasts airing on free TV WPIX-11 (since 2015). Gary Cohen has been the play-by-play voice since SNY’s inception, working throughout with analysts Ron Darling and Keith Hernandez. Former Mets voice Gary Thorne worked a couple series last year and it wouldn’t be surprising to see a return.

Radio news station WCBS (880-AM) will be the flagship station for the fourth consecutive year. Howie Rose and Wayne Randazzo have been paired during the WCBS tenure. Rose was also the lead radio voice when the Mets aired on WFAN (2006-13) and WOR (2014-18) and previously was a TV play-by-play on the former Fox Sports Net New York. Randazzo was the backup to Josh Lewin from 2015-18. Longtime Mets reporter Ed Coleman just announced his retirement so it’s unclear who the pre-game and post-game show host will be. Brad Heller is WCBS’ studio host.

The Mets have no radio affiliates in the Hudson Valley. The Audacy App will provide free streaming for all Mets games, in English and Spanish, plus on the website Mets.com. The Mets’ Spanish radiocasts will also air on Spanish-language WEPN (1050-AM). Max Perez Jimenez and Nestor Rosario have the Spanish calls.

Schedules to be announced on a monthly basis over the first five months and then weekly for September/October

Apple TV+

A new Friday Night Baseball series will debut on subscription webstream service Apple TV+. There are doubleheaders scheduled starting April 8 when new Mets acquisition Max Scherzer will likely make his return to his old haunts, against the Washington Nationals.

Even though Apple TV+ is a pay service, the company will provide the games free of charge (for an unspecified period of time). The games are available to anyone with internet access across devices where Apple TV+ can be found – that includes Apple TV app on iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV 4K and HD and on tv.apple.com. There will also be links on smart TVs, gaming consoles and cable set-top boxes.

What viewers need to know is these Apple TV games will NOT be available on your normal broadcast or cable homes (like YES Network, SNY and WPIX-11 in New York market). Though not specified, those games should be available for replay on the subscription MLB.tv service.

There will be half-hour pregame and post-game shows for each of the games. No announcement of game announcers or studio hosts was made but don’t be surprised if this becomes a production of MLB Network.

NBC Sports/Peacock

Breakfast at the ballpark?

NBCUniversal subscription service Peacock has reached a two-year deal for 18 Sunday exclusive games, with start times at 11:30 a.m. or slightly after noon in order to reduce conflicts with the rest of the schedule that gets underway at 1 p.m. The monthly Peacock subscription is $9.99.

MLB scheduled a handful of games on Peacock in 2021, utilizing broadcasts that originated on NBC’s cable sports properties (Comcast Sports).

Regular-season schedule to be announced

SiriusXM Radio

The subscription based audio service offers most home-team broadcasts on MLB Channels 176-189. MLB Network channel 89 often presents live games. ESPN telecasts can be heard on channel 80. Every MLB team has its own SXM channel as well, and those can be heard online.

Traditional radio

For those who still like to tune in on radio, there are probably still some out-of-town stations that you can find for games, mostly on evenings. Boston Red Sox games still air on Hartford’s WTIC (1080-AM), and that signal is good during day-time hours. Albany’s WOFX (980-AM) also carries the Red Sox, and its signal may be good in northern regions. Philadelphia Phillies games can be heard in our Pennsylvania territory on Scranton’s WEJL (630-AM) and Wilkes-Barre’s WBAX (1240-AM). Chicago Cubs games air on WSCR (670-AM), though on some nights it’s hard to hear with interference from New York’s WFAN (660-AM). Washington Nationals games air on WFED (1500-AM). Chicago White Sox games air on WMVP (1000-AM). St. Louis Cardinals games air on KMOX (1120-AM).
