The Boston Red Sox return home today for their first game in Boston since the marathon bombings and manhunt for Dzhokar Tsarnaev came to a triumphant conclusion Friday night. The city of Boston returns to life after being shut down for the length of the day Friday after Thursday night's shootout and subsequent hunt for the younger brother. Both the Red Sox and Bruins were supposed to play last night, but those games were postponed until this afternoon.
MLB Network will air the Red Sox-Royals game from Fenway Park at 1:00 PM ET in what is sure to be an emotional scene that will parallel Wednesday night's Bruins-Sabres game. In addition, both MLB Network and ESPN will have live pregame coverage from Fenway. ESPN will have coverage anchored by Jeremy Schapp while Greg Amsinger anchors MLB Network's coverage.
NHL Network will also provide national coverage of today's Penguins-Bruins game at 12:30 PM ET.
@awfulannouncing ohhh Trent Dilfer with a pet peeve... it's a MOOT point, not a MUTE point, unless you are saying its silent....
Important to note that today's Royals v Red Sox game has also been made as the MLB.TV Free Game of the Day - which is a really classy move by MLB. Unfortunately, it doesn't benefit me as I live in the Royals television market.
@awfulannouncing Yes but the switch to the NHL Network has caused the Penguins Bruins game to be blacked out on NHL Gamecenter
