NEW YORK – FOX Sports’ coverage of the World Series presented by YouTube TV begins Tuesday, Oct. 22, when the Washington Nationals take on the Houston Astros live from Minute Maid Park at 8:00 PM ET on FOX. The network’s highly acclaimed pregame show returns at 7:00 PM ET on FS1 to preview the game before switching over to FOX for additional coverage at 7:30 PM ET.

For the 20th consecutive season and 22nd overall, the FOX broadcast network is the exclusive home of the World Series, this year streaming live via the FOX Sports app and airing exclusively in Spanish on FOX Deportes.

The network’s lead broadcast team of Emmy Award-winning play-by-play announcer Joe Buck and Hall-of-Fame pitcher John Smoltz are on the call alongside veteran Emmy Award-winning reporters Ken Rosenthal and Tom Verducci.

The network provides pregame and postgame coverage with return of host Kevin Burkhardt, anchoring the desk with a panel comprised of Hall of Famer Frank Thomas and World Series Champions David Ortiz and Alex Rodriguez as analysts.

FOX Deportes provides all-inclusive coverage of the World Series, led by play-by-play announcer Rolando Nichols, analyst Edgar Gonzalez and reporter Carlos Alvarez. Nichols, Gonzalez and Alvarez are set to be on-site for the Fall Classic, airing exclusively in Spanish on FOX Deportes.
