INDIANAPOLIS - Indianapolis Indians games will have a familiar home for at least the next three seasons, as the Tribe and FOX Sports 975 have announced a three-year extension to their partnership. The agreement includes an option for a fourth year and starts with the 2018 season. Indians games can be found on 97.5 FM, AM 1260 and the iHeartRadio app.

We're very appreciative of the continued support from FOX Sports 975, and we look forward to several more years working together."

FOX Sports 975 has been the home for Indians baseball since 2011. The Voice of the Indians, Howard Kellman, will be on the call in 2018, marking his 43rd season with the Tribe. For the fourth straight season, he'll be joined in the booth by broadcaster Andrew Kappes.
