The Royals are one of the hottest stories in Major League Baseball this year, and naturally everyone wants in on the action. Your plucky Royals, who not that long ago had their August and September games bumped off Fox Sports Kansas City in favor of Missouri State football, will be nationally televised three times this week.
Monday's Yankees game will be televised on the worldwide leader, ESPN. This is the rained out game originally scheduled for June 9. It will be Derek Jeter's last game ever in Kansas City. ESPN will carry the game nationally, although the game will be blacked out for viewers in the Fox Sports Kansas City market, so that FS Kansas City can carry the game locally. ESPN with a game preview here.
Sunday night's game against Cleveland will also be televised by ESPN on "Sunday Night Baseball." The game has been moved from 1:10 to 7:07 to accommodate the national broadcast.
Tuesday night's game against the Minnesota Twins will be carried by Fox Sports 1 (FS1). It is the third time the Royals have appeared on FS1 this year.
