Apple and Major League Baseball

Apple and Major League Baseball (MLB) today announced the August 2023 “Friday Night Baseball” schedule, available to all Apple TV+ subscribers.

“Friday Night Baseball” games on Apple TV+ are called each week by Wayne Randazzo (play-by-play), Dontrelle Willis (analyst), Heidi Watney (sideline reporter), Alex Faust (play-by-play), Ryan Spilborghs (analyst), and Tricia Whitaker (sideline reporter). Brian Gorman and Dale Scott — both former MLB umpires — join to break down rules and calls. Game assignments for announcers will be shared on a weekly basis.

Lauren Gardner and Siera Santos continue to handle “Friday Night Baseball” studio show hosting duties, with former MLB players Xavier Scruggs and Matt Joyce serving as analysts alongside baseball journalist Russell Dorsey and betting analyst Claudia Bellofatto.

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.
