Major League Baseball today announced the start times for Division Series games through Sunday, October 11th. KSST, a member of the Texas Rangers Network, will broadcast all Rangers games beginning with Thursday, October 8th. Thursday first pitch will be 2:37 p.m. Pregame will begin broadcast at 2 p.m. The Rangers are in Toronto for the first two games of the Wild Card series.
Friday, October 9th, the Rangers first pitch is set for 11:45 a.m. Again, KSST will broadcast the game including the pregame show which should begin at about 11 a.m. This will disrupt our normal schedule. Therefore, the obituaries, normally heard at 12:20 p.m., The Trading Post, normally heard at 12:30 p.m., and the local news, broadcast at 12:45 p.m., will be moved to 4 p.m. Friday. At 4 p.m. the obituaries will be read followed by the Trading Post and then the local news. Drive Time with Jordan Owens will begin immediately following the news. Wildcat Football pregame will begin at 6:30 p.m. as usual and, of course, KSST will broadcast the Wildcats versus Greenville Lions with kickoff at 7:30 p.m.
The third Rangers game against Toronto will begin with first pitch Sunday evening at 7:05 p.m. First Baptist Church will be hosting their church picnic Sunday afternoon; therefore, KSST will broadcast a previous worship service at 5:30 p.m. Sunday instead of the normal 7 p.m. hour. Pregame for the Rangers game will begin at 6:30 p.m. Sunday evening.
As other game schedules are announced, KSST will publish start times and, of course, carry the games live.
Thursday’s game and Sunday’s Rangers game will be televised on FS1. The Friday game will be televised on the MLB Network.
