    Twins Fans.......Home Opener

    Just letting Twins fans who live outside the Midwest know that the Twins game is on ESPN today at 3 pm CDT. Living on the West coast I don't get to see them that often, so thought some others might be in the same situation. Looking forward to seeing the "official" opening of Target Field!

    Thanks! Had to call my buddy in Phoenix to remind him about the start time. Minnesota baseball was meant to be played outdoors!

    Re: Twins Fans.......Home Opener

    Did I hear right that it's supposed to storm for the opener?

    Re: Twins Fans.......Home Opener

    This is going to be blacked out, I assume?

    Re: Twins Fans.......Home Opener

    Shouldn't be blacked out - ESPN has the rights

    Only if you consider a 30-50% chance of rain "supposed to"...

    Leaving work in 10 minutes in order to get home in time to watch the game.

    Yet it's being broadcasted on FS North. My guess is, since I have DirecTV, I'll be watching the game on 668...

    But not the EXCLUSIVE rights.

    FS North in the Twins market.
    NESN in the Red Sox market.

    ESPN everywhere else (outside the blackout areas).

    Shoot, you're right. I thought it was ESPN exclusive, but saw that FS-N is carrying it also... hope everyone has FS-N

    Re: Twins Fans.......Home Opener

    It'll be blacked out on ESPN on my DirecTV.

    I'd rather watch and listen to the FSN North announcers over ESPN anyway.

    Correct. The MLB blackout situation is beyond crazy.

    Right. If you live in MN, ND, SD, IA or west central WI, the only place to watch will be FS-N.
