The Los Angeles Dodgers continue their final home series of the season with another matchup against the San Francisco Giants in a game being streamed exclusively by Apple TV+ and not available on SportsNet LA or any other network.
Dubbed “Friday Night Baseball,” Apple TV+’s MLB broadcast is in its second year. This is the Dodgers’ fourth time appearing on Apple TV+ this season, with their last coming against the Boston Red Sox.
“Friday Night Baseball” games on Apple TV+ are called each week by Wayne Randazzo on play-by-play, feature reporter Heidi Watney and rotating group of analysts. Dontrelle Willis is going to join Randazzo and Watney for the Dodgers stream.
They also have a group that includes play-by-play man Alex Faust, analyst Ryan Spilborghs and sideline reporter Tricia Whitaker.
Brian Gorman and Dale Scott — both former MLB umpires — join to break down rules and calls.
Lauren Gardner and Siera Santos handle the studio show for “Friday Night Baseball,” and former MLB players Xavier Scruggs and Matt Joyce join as analysts.
Apple TV+ subscribers can enjoy additional content, including the MLB Big Inning whip-around show featuring live look-ins and in-game highlights every weeknight, and a full slate of MLB-related content, including “Countdown to First Pitch,” “MLB Daily Recap” and “MLB This Week.”
Fans can also access additional MLB programming for free in the Apple TV app, including “Friday Night Baseball” condensed game recaps after the completion of the live broadcasts each week, classic games, highlights and interviews, and more.
