Aggies selected for eight games on the SEC television package

By  | 

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – The Texas A&M Aggies were selected for eight games as part of the 2019 SEC Baseball linear television package, the league announced Wednesday.

The SEC Network, in its fifth year, is scheduled to air 75 baseball games in 2019, part of nearly 100 games 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 prior to the 2015 season.

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

Olsen Field at Blue Bell Park, the baseball gem of the Brazos Valley, will be the launching point for three of the linear broadcasts. The Aggies will have their non-conference match-up against Rice televised on March 19, along with two home SEC games aired against Mississippi State (May 2-4).

A vast majority of 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.

Texas A&M will have five road games televised on the linear networks, including two games at LSU (April 6-7), one at South Carolina (April 20), one at Ole Miss (April 25) and a Sunday game at Alabama (May 12).

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

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