COLUMBIA — The Missouri baseball team announced Thursday that it is scheduled to have four games televised live during the 2014 season.
ESPNU is set to broadcast the game when Missouri visits Auburn on March 27, scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
Fox Sports Net is scheduled to broadcast three Missouri games on March 29, April 26 and May 10. The March 29 game is scheduled for noon at Auburn. The April 26 game is scheduled for 11 a.m. at Florida. The game May 10 is scheduled for 2:15 p.m. at South Carolina.
The March 27 game at Auburn is the first of eight consecutive weeks that the ESPN networks will broadcast a “Thursday Night SEC Baseball Game of the Week.” Including those eight games, ESPN’s networks are scheduled to broadcast 22 Southeastern Conference baseball games live nationally this season, according to an SEC press release. Those 22 games include the semifinals and championship of the SEC tournament.
“We are very proud of the success and popularity of baseball in our league,” SEC Commissioner Mike Slive said in a press release. “We are pleased to be able to continue to offer an increased amount of television coverage of SEC baseball to our teams and to our fans. This continues to move our baseball exposure to new levels and to a national audience.”
Missouri is scheduled to open the season Feb. 14 against Richmond at Jacksonville, Fla. The Tigers’ first home game is set for Feb. 28 against Illinois-Chicago. Tennessee is Missouri’s first SEC opponent when the Volunteers come to Columbia the weekend of March 14 to 16.
