2014 MLB on Fox Sports 1 Schedule

One of the big positives when Fox announced the new Fox Sports 1 that would help the network in its early days was that it gained the rights to MLB games with the new TV contract signed in September 2012. Now we have the first MLB schedule for Fox Sports 1, predominantly on Saturdays but with also games on some Tuesdays and Thursdays. FS1 will also have a nightly baseball highlights show called MLB Whiparound at 10 EST.

And some more big news is that the new lead Fox broadcast crew will be Joe Buck, Harold Reynolds and Tom Verducci, replacing Buck and Tim McCarver.  

Here's the 2014 FS1 MLB schedule, with announcers to be filled in all season long.

  1. Oh so Joe Buck really does have something against the Yankees or NY in general because he not doing the first Fox Redsox/Yankee game in which he should...

    1. I agree. That was very unusual.

    2. It was because he was getting married that weekend.

  2. Ben, Since Joe Buck did not broadcast the Yankees and Red Sox matchup, are they saying that he may announce the Angles and Yankees on April 26?

    1. Buck didn't do that game since he was getting married so I don't know when he will be doing games again.

    2. I think He would do Pirates/Cardinals because he is more of a St. Louis guy i believe...

  3. Since Joe Buck missed The Yankees when they faced the Red Sox and the Angels due to his marriage, will he broadcast the Yankees and Pirates on May 17?

  4. I wonder if Thom Brennaman would do any games if the Reds play. He's done this in the past.

    1. Brennaman always does a good chunk of the Fox games and he generally will do any Cincinnati Fox game, although not always.

    2. Because Brennaman does Reds games, he has also done Cincinnati Bengals games for NFL on Fox games.

  5. Ben, yankees.com says that Fox Sports 1 will be broadcasting the New York Yankees vs Tampa Bay Rays on August 16.

    1. Your welcome. I think the game you accidentally put there was supposed to be St. Louis Cardinals at Baltimore Orioles at 4:00 after the Indians vs Yankees on August 9th.

  6. You missed Saturday, August 30- Reds at Pirates
