Play ball! The 12th consecutive New York Mets baseball season on PIX11 swings into action on Sunday, April 17 when the Mets face the Atlanta Braves for the first of 25 regular season Mets games airing in HD on PIX11.
Key games airing on PIX11 include the May 22 and July 1 Subway Series games when the Mets face their cross-town rivals, and four games against NL East rivals Philadelphia Phillies (May 29, July 17, September 24 and 25.)
All games will be produced by SNY, with both home and away games available in HD. In addition, all New York Mets games broadcast on PIX will include SAP and will be Closed-Captioned.
Calling the action all-season long is SNY’s broadcast team featuring Ron Darling, Keith Hernandez and Gary Cohen – widely considered the best broadcast team in all of baseball.
Hall-of-Famer Ralph Kiner will also return to the broadcast booth for his 50th season covering the Mets as a contributing analyst. Rounding out the broadcast team is SNY’s Mets field reporter Kevin Burkhardt, who will continue to provide his critically acclaimed in-game interviews – including interviews with starting pitchers immediately after they exit the game – as well as features with players, coaches and other personalities as part of the unique perspective Burkhardt brings to the broadcast.
SNY’s Emmy Award-winning producer and director – Gregg Picker and Bill Webb – will return in their roles for all SNY-produced Mets telecasts.
PIX11 has won three Emmy Awards for its live sports coverage of the Mets. For additional coverage, photos and highlights, visit www.pix11.com
