ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball. Normally a time that Boston Red Sox fans loathe because that means we have to listen to Jon Miller and Joe Morgan along with Orel Hershiser.

Major League Baseball on ESPNDon’t get me wrong, Miller isn’t all that bad and Hershiser is great. It was Morgan we all despised.

Well when the Red Sox appear on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball this year, we won’t have to listen to Miller and Morgan anymore. They’re gone. In their places, Dan Shulman will be the play-by-play announcer along with Hershiser and Bobby Valentine as analysts.

Shulman has been doing ESPN’s Monday Night Baseball for the past three seasons and before that was on ESPN Wednesday Night Baseball from 2002-2007.

Oh by the way, ESPN announced a portion of their Sunday Night Baseball schedule on Wednesday afternoon and here is when our beloved Red Sox will be on.

  • April 10, New York Yankees @ Boston Red Sox, 8:05 p.m.
  • May 15, Boston Red Sox @ New York Yankees, 8:05 p.m.
  • May 22, Chicago Cubs @ Boston Red Sox, 8:05 p.m.
  • July 17, Boston Red Sox @ Tampa Bay Rays, 8:05 p.m.

Also, the Red Sox will be on ESPN on Opening Day, April 1st at 4 p.m. when they’ll take on the 2010 American League Champion Texas Rangers in Arlington, TX.
