Brewers-Giants atop MLB Network slate
The Brewers’ April 9 series finale in San Francisco will be televised by the new MLB Network, the first of eight April and May Thursday night broadcasts announced by the network today. Former Brewers play-by-play man Matt Vasgersian will have the call alongside color man Joe Magrane.
”It’s important for MLB Network right from the start to establish a national footprint with live games, and we’ve done that with this Thursday night package to complement our ambitious nightly studio show, MLB Tonight,” said Tony Petitti, President and Chief Executive Officer of MLB Network. “We’re very excited about the mix of games we’ll show in the first two months, and think fans will continue to appreciate the versatility of our on-air talent as they transition seamlessly between the studio and the broadcast booth.”
The Brewers-Giants game, set for a 6 p.m. CT first pitch, will also air as originally
scheduled on FSN Wisconsin with Brian Anderson and Bill Schroeder. Manny Parra, who pitches today against the Dodgers, is lined up to make that start in San Francisco.
