Although the Fox network normally runs its Saturday package of games in the afternoon, there will be (at least) two primetime games on Saturday this year and – not surprisingly – the Yankees will be part of both of them.
On May 22 (when the Yankees play the Mets) and on June 26 (when they play the Dodgers), Fox will show regional coverage with the Yankees games being the top bill in both cases.
Truthfully, I’ve never quite understood why Fox doesn’t just put all of its games in primtime. Saturday programming is notoriously weak, so why not give baseball a shot?
(Personal aside: As a writer, I’ve always hated 4 p.m. games anyway — they’re just early enough to make it impossible to do much before heading to the park and just late enough that it’s tough to make plans to do anything after you’re done working.)
