ESPN to televise several early Cubs games in 2020
|Thursday, November 21, 2019, 2:16 PM- -|
ESPN announced Thursday that they will be televising two of the first four Chicago Cubs games of 2020.
The first 'Sunday Night Baseball' game will be Cubs vs. Brewers at 6 p.m. CT on March 29 at Miller Park. The following day, the sports channel will air the Cubs home opener at 3:10 p.m. CT on March 30 against the Pirates.
If I had to guess, the Cubs-Cardinals game on April 12 will probably be a 'Sunday Night Baseball' selection but they have not announced that week's selection yet.
Hopefully, this helps Cubs fans starved for information as the regular season will be here before you know it.
