  • Yankees boycott threat works, ESPN will no longer televise game

The issue stems the Yankees being scheduled to take on the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday Night Baseball on July 8th. ESPN selected the Dodgers and Angels to fill the 8 p.m. broadcast slot. The Yankees/Blue Jays game returned to its original 1 p.m. start and the network picked up the Angels/Dodgers contest for that day's SNB telecast.

The Yankees got their wish, as their game against the Jays on July 8 has been moved back to a 1 PM ET start time and will no longer be featured on Sunday Night Baseball, Andrew Marchand of the New York Post reports.

Amazon achète 20 matchs par saison — Premier League
Pour avoir accès à Amazon Prime il faut tout de même débourser 79 livres (90,1 euros) par an ou 7,99 livres (9,1 euros) par mois. La LFP et la Ligue 1 espéraient que ces opérateurs se porteraient candidats pour quelques-uns des lots mis en vente récemment.

The Yankees reportedly were unaware they had been chosen as the Sunday night game before agreeing to the July 9 doubleheader against Baltimore, which was forced when the teams' scheduled game this past Sunday was postponed due to rain. NY was against the idea of an 8 p.m. start instead of its normal 1 p.m. start time. But playing three games in about 26 hours, with a flight mixed in, is a pretty extreme ask for any baseball team. "I think a lot of people behind the scenes - I think the Commissioner was very involved - just really grateful to him and to ESPN and to the Yankees and all the people involved I think clearly ended up doing the right thing here in considering the product and player safety and all those kinds of things".
