MLB Network to televise Dodgers-Diamondbacks games in Australia

MLB Network

For those out of market, MLB Network will televise the opening series in Sydney, with Matt Vasgersian and John Smoltz on the call.

GLENDALE -- The two opening games of the regular season between the Dodgers and Diamondbacks in Australia will be televised by MLB Network, Major League Baseball announced today. However those broadcasts will be blacked out in the Dodgers and Diamondbacks TV markets, meaning local viewers will need SportsNet LA to watch the games.

SportsNet LA, which launches on Tuesday night at 7 p.m. PT, is currently only carried by Time Warner Cable and the Bakersfield-based Bright House Networks.

The Dodgers and Diamondbacks play games on March 22-23 in Sydney, at 1 a.m. and 7 p.m. PT on March 22. Matt Vasgersian and John Smoltz will call the games for MLB Network.

The first game will be replayed on MLB Network at 4 a.m. PT on March 22.

Internationally, the Nine Network will televise the games in Australia and ESPN will simulcast the games to Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands, Latin America and the Caribbea.

In addition, the two exhibition games against Team Australia will be exclusively televised by ESPN Australia. The Dodgers will play Team Australia on March 20 at 1 a.m. PT (7 p.m. in Sydney) and the Diamondbacks will play Australia on March 21 at 1 a.m. PT.
