    TV Coverage of Game 163 (If Necessary)?

    I've been looking but I haven't found any information on this.
    If the worst case scenario happens and there is a NYY/BAL game tomorrow to determine the AL East Champion, on what network(s) will it be broadcast? Does YES get that game as it's still a regular season game? Is there also national coverage?

    Anyone know?

    no clue but best guess is one of ESPN/MLB will pick it up for national broadcast
    Baseball is life;
    the rest is just details.

    No television blackout restrictions will be in place if major league baseballís regular season requires overtime and extends to a one-game playoff on Thursday. Any such game will be televised exclusively by TBS and will not be subject to Major League Baseballís blackout restrictions, an MLB spokesperson confirmed today.

    A Game 163 would be considered part of the regular season, but will not be blacked out because local broadcast rightsholders will not be televising the game in addition to TBS.

    So YES wouldn't have the broadcast at all. Wow, interesting.

    That sucks. I'd much rather it be on YES.
