Montreal, March 31, 2015—As an official Major League Baseball (MLB) broadcaster, RDS will offer viewers almost 80 top matchups on Sundays, Mondays and Wednesdays during the 2015 regular season. The games will be broadcast on RDS and RDS2.


Many major-league players have changed teams over the past few months, and the opening weeks of the regular season will give fans a better idea of which squads have enough strength in depth to make it all the way to the Fall Classic this October. In the National League, the teams to watch are the Nationals, Dodgers and Cubs. Meanwhile, over in the American League, the contenders include the Mariners, Angels and Red Sox—who spent over $250 million during the off-season, signing Pablo Sandoval, Hanley Ramirez and Rusney Castillo to big-money deals.

RDS will lead off its baseball coverage by presenting the opening game of the 2015 season between the St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs on Sunday, April 5, at 8 p.m. ET.

The RDS schedule includes three other games from the first week of regular- season action. First, the Cleveland Indians face the Houston Astros on Monday, April 6, at 7 p.m. ET. Then, the Boston Red Sox take on the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday, April 8, at 7 p.m. ET. Finally, on Sunday, April 12, at 8 p.m. ET, the New York Yankees host their old rivals, the Boston Red Sox (see broadcast schedule below).

Marc Griffin and Alain Usereau will handle the play-by-play and analysis for all MLB games broadcast on RDS this season.
