Orioles 2014 Opener To Air On ESPN2

Posted on January 09, 2014 by Paul Folkemer

The Orioles will be getting some national attention when they kick off the 2014 regular season.

ESPN2 will broadcast the Orioles' season opener against the Boston Red Sox at 3 p.m. March 31. The game will be one of five season openers ESPN networks will broadcast that day. The game will still air locally on the Orioles' usual TV network, MASN, as well.

ESPN also announced that its season-opening Sunday night broadcast March 30 would be the Los Angeles Dodgers against the San Diego Padres, putting to rest my previous fears that ESPN would move the Orioles-Red Sox opener to that time slot. I had convinced myself that ESPN would move the O's game to Sunday night to spotlight the defending World Series champion Red Sox, but I'm happy to be wrong. The Orioles will get to start the baseball season as it was intended to be -- on a weekday afternoon, under the sun, instead of a cold March evening.
