LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers new television network, SportsNet LA, will produce 75 games in Spanish in 2014, the club announced on Thursday.
The first game broadcast in Spanish will be the home opener against the Giants on April 4, and all games will feature graphics and audio in Spanish. The games will be called live at Dodger Stadium by Jorge Jarrin and Manny Mota.
It will be the third season working together for Jarrin and Mota, who called select games in Spanish in previous years. The 75 games in Spanish is a new high for the Dodgers, and will increase to 150 games in 2015.
"The Dodgers have an incredible Spanish-speaking fan base and we are ecstatic to be able to provide them with more live games in their language than they’ve ever had before because of our new television network, SportsNet LA," said team CEO Stan Kasten in a statement. "It’s fantastic that Manny Mota and Jorge Jarrín, who we’re so excited to have calling Dodger games once again, will be able to speak directly to even more Dodger fans this season."
For Time Warner Cable customers, the Spanish-language television broadcasts will be available in high definition on channel 382 in Los Angeles, 324 in desert cities, and 664 in Barstow. In standard definition, the games can be viewed on channel 858 in L.A., 357 in desert cities and 153 in Barstow. For those with analog transmission, you can watch on channel 68 or 70 while reminiscing about living through The Depression.
