I heard this on The Michael Kay Show on ESPN Radio (1050 AM in NYC) during the drive home tonight.
Since the “last game” at Yankee Stadium this season is a Sunday, ESPN owns the rights to show the game – not the YES Network. What a bummer.
Two concerns: One, they better not turn this game into a Sunday-night game – that would be a crime. The last game at the Stadium deserves to be played in the sun. Secondly, ESPN better air the ceremonies planned for that day as well – or allow YES to pick them up. Imagine if none of that great stuff is captured for all-time sake?
