FOX Sports North to televise Double-A New Britain’s Aug. 19 game

FOX Sports North has announced plans to televise prospect Miguel Sano and the New Britain Rock Cats’ Aug. 19 game versus the Trenton Thunder, live at 6 p.m. CDT.

Coverage will begin that Monday evening at 5:30 p.m. with a live version of “Spotlight: Twins Next Generation presented by Century Link.” Following the game — at approximately 9 p.m. — the network will televise “Twins Squeeze Play” with highlights from that day’s earlier Minnesota Twins game against the New York Mets.

Designed to educate fans about up-and-coming Twins players and provide an in-depth look at the franchise’s farm system, FOX Sports North will profile some of baseball’s top prospects, including Sano, the Rock Cats’ power-hitting third baseman.

Anthony LaPanta, Ron Coomer and Tom Kelly will anchor the telecast from the FOX Sports North studio. Twins president Dave St. Peter will provide additional live insight during “Spotlight: Twins Next Generation.”
