Every game on the Detroit Tigers’ much-anticipated 2015 regular-season schedule will be televised, including 150 originated by FOX Sports Detroit, six games on FOX Sports 1 and two selected for the FOX Saturday Baseball Game of the Week. Two (with potential for two more) games are on ESPN.
FOX Sports Detroit’s coverage of the Tigers, presented by Belle Tire, leads off with six spring training games, followed by the April 6 home opener against Minnesota. Coverage on Opening Day begins at 10 a.m. with back-to-back replays of our season preview and is followed by a two-hour pre-game show. The telecasts will feature an analyst rotation of Rod Allen (13th season), Kirk Gibson and Jack Morris. Mario Impemba (14th season) will continue to provide play-by-play.
Tigers fans continue to receive quality and comprehensive coverage from FOX Sports Detroit, which has earned 105 Michigan Emmys since 2000, including 20 for Tigers programming. The network’s extensive baseball lineup in 2015 includes TIGERS LIVE, which will air before and after every telecast. Our pre- and postgame shows are typically an hour long.
The Season Preview premieres on March 30 at 7:30 p.m. FOX Sports Detroit also presents Tigers Weekly, which debuts on April 17 at 11:30 a.m. and new episodes air throughout the season.
“We are counting down the days until the 2015 season. All of us at FOX Sports Detroit are as excited for what’s happening on the field as we are with the additions of Jack and Kirk to our broadcasting team,” said Greg Hammaren, senior vice president and general manager of FOX Sports Detroit. “Everyone at FOX Sports Detroit looks forward to the privilege of delivering daily episodes of Tigers baseball – and continuing to bring another level of expertise and excitement for what is the most captivating reality show on television.”
The Tigers will be on FOX Saturday Baseball on June 6 at the Chicago White Sox and June 20 at the New York Yankees. The games will receive regional coverage on WJBK-FOX 2 in Detroit and other FOX network affiliates throughout Tigers territory.
