The Pawtucket Red Sox and myRITV have expanded their partnership for the 2018 season. The PawSox home-opener (April 6), every Saturday night PawSox home game, and every Sunday game at McCoy will all be televised live on myRITV this season. In their second year of televising PawSox action, the myRITV schedule has increased from 11 games last season to 23 this season.
The Saturday night telecasts, dubbed "It's a PawSox Saturday Night on myRITV", will all begin at 6:00 pm with a 15-minute pre-game show and then a 6:15 pm game time. All will be followed by post-game fireworks spectaculars, as the PawSox stage firework shows after each Saturday evening home game again in 2018. The first such Saturday night telecast is April 21 vs. Gwinnett.
The dozen Sunday telecasts will all begin at 1:30 pm with the exception of Sunday, September 2 (Labor Day eve) that will be a 6:00 pm start on air and a 6:15 pm game followed by fireworks.
PawSox radio broadcasters Josh Maurer and Will Flemming will once again handle much of the myRITV play-by-play duties while working with various color analysts.
myRITV is seen throughout Rhode Island and Bristol County Massachusetts. It is available as a free broadcast channel on WNAC-TV 64.2. The station can be found in HD on Cox 1015, Verizon 514, and Comcast 820. A complete list of channels is available at foxprovidence.com/myrittv.
"It is exciting to see the partnership with myRITV grow in 2018," said PawSox Senior VP/Sales & Marketing, Rob Crain. "With a third of our home games on television throughout Rhode Island and in Bristol County, Massachusetts, this gives fans who can't make it out to the ballpark even more opportunities to see the fun at McCoy while watching the Red Sox stars of tomorrow."
"Year one was terrific with myRI and the Pawtucket Red Sox," said Patrick Wholey, President and General Manager of WPRI 12, Fox Providence, myRITV, and CW Providence. "We look forward to expanding our relationship with the PawSox, a great partner and a true local brand that blends well with all of our market leading local programming."
