2013 MLB on FOX Announcers & Distribution: June 22nd

Wasn't the 2011 World Series great? I would like to think that most folks would be in the affirmative camp, especially those cats in St. Louis, who of course were victors over the Rangers. Well good news for baseball fans as this weekend will be a rematch of the 2011 Fall Classic in the Gateway City, with the Saturday bout being one of five games on FOX Baseball Night in America. Most of the country will see that game, while others will see Red Sox-Tigers, Dodgers-Padres, Reds-Diamondbacks or Twins-Indians. Continue reading for distribution splits and announcing assignments.

Will the Spurs or Heat claim the NBA title in Game 7?

Let's be honest, it will be damn tough for games to be much better than what we saw on Tuesday night in Miami in Game 6. A game that saw the Heat rally to take a three-point lead late, only for the Spurs to fight back with Tony Parker scoring five straight points including that epic threeball to tie it and the club all of a sudden was up five with 28 seconds left. Even as the league was preparing to set up for a Spurs victory celebration, the Heat were able to force overtime with a clutch three by LeBron James and then an insane three to tie it by Ray Allen set up by a key rebound by Chris Bosh. And then when Bosh stuffed Danny Green in overtime, we had a Game 7.

Now the 2012-13 NBA season is coming down to one game on Thursday night. Who will come out on top?

What does calling up Wil Myers mean for the Rays?

Arguably the most talked about prospect is about to hit the show as the Tampa Bay Rays called up outfielder Wil Myers last night; he will debut tomorrow night at Fenway Park. Myers was the centerpiece of the James Shields deal with Kansas City back in December and his debut has been much anticipated. What could his call-up mean for Tampa Bay?
