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.
