Aggies Selected for 11 Games on the SEC Television Package

By  | 

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – The Texas A&M Aggies were selected for 11 games as part of the 2017 SEC Baseball linear television package, the league announced on Wednesday.

The SEC Network, in its third year, is scheduled to air 75 baseball games in 2017, part of more than 90 planned across the ESPN family of networks (ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU or SEC Network). Coverage of the conference sport on national television has quadrupled since SEC Network launched last year.

The Maroon and White will have seven games aired on the SEC Network along with three games on ESPNU and one on ESPN2.

Olsen Field at Blue Bell Park, the baseball gem of the Brazos Valley, will be the launching point for four of the linear broadcasts, all on the SEC Network. The Aggies will have their non-conference affair against Rice televised on March 21. Texas A&M will have two games against Mississippi State (May 4 & 6) and one against Arkansas (May 20) broadcast.

All Aggie home games not on the ESPN linear networks will be available on SEC Network + with Will Johnson and Mark Johnson on the call. SEC Network + is available through the WatchESPN app and SECNetwork.com. Fans must sign in with their credentials from a participating TV provider to access SEC Network +. The SEC Network + broadcasts at Blue Bell Park will be ESPN-quality with a full graphics package.

The Aggies will have seven road games televised on the linear networks, including two games each at Vanderbilt (March 25-26) and Ole Miss (May 13-14), and all three games of their series at LSU (March 30-April 1).

This year's schedule also includes five wild card selections, allowing the network the opportunity to determine the best television matchup at a later date.

The 2017 schedule steps up to bat with a four-hour Bases Loaded special on the opening night of conference play, Friday, March 17. The show will feature a live compilation of seven games – all 14 teams – taking place that evening.

SEC Network and ESPN2 will conclude the regular season with comprehensive coverage of the SEC Baseball Tournament, marking the third consecutive season the entire tournament has aired on national television.
