so it looks like if your team is one of them involved, it will be blacked out (obviously to make you watch the local telecast)

wonder what happens if a game is not televised by a team that is involved? Do they lift the blackout?

I believe so. As you well know, Thursdays are mainly travel days for many teams and those that play are mostly doing "get away games" to get to their weekend cities. Alot of smaller market teams are radio broadcast only those days.

It would only make sense.

Nice to see a day-night doubleheader on April 16: Indians-Yankees and Blue Jays-Twins. :up

Bob, This is just the start of the season coverage. Perhaps they will do Saturdays as the summer comes on. I used to love the F/X Saturday night games back before Extra Innings. In fact that's where I first heard Matt call a game.

They blacked out the Yankees last weekend here in the NJ/NY area and neither YES nor WOR Channel 9 had the game.
