The following is a detailed description of the various television networks (both broadcast and cable), rights fees, and announcers who have called Major League Baseball games throughout the years (from the late 1930s through the present).
In the past these rights were held by The Score (2001–2002), TSN (1990–2000), and CTV (1981–1996).
The Reds won the first game 5–2 while the Dodgers won the second, 6–1.
-- A partnership between Major League Baseball and Under Armour that has spanned more than a decade and a half took another step forward on Monday, with the announcement of a long-term uniform pact beginning in 2020.
From 1996 to 2000, the network's league coverage was reduced to postseason games (three Division Series games in prime time, the American League Championship Series in even-numbered years, and the National League Championship Series and World Series in odd-numbered years), as well as the All-Star Game in even-numbered years (during years when NBC did not hold the rights to the World Series).
NBC television's relationship with Major League Baseball technically dates back to August 26, 1939.
