Minnesota Twins to Have 12 Games Broadcasted Nationally This Season
Minnesota Twins fans will have the opportunity to watch all 162 regular season games this year between FOX Sports North and 12 nationally televised games.
The Twins are entering the 2018 season off a fantastic 2017 that included a MLB Wild Card Playoff appearance. Because of the recent success, the Minnesota Twins will make 12 national television appearances this season.
National TV coverage for Major League Baseball breaks down between ESPN, ESPN2, FOX, FS1, TBS, and MLB Network. Minnesota will appear on three of those outlets. Most of their games that will be shown nationwide will be on MLB Network. Those MLB Network games will only be shown out-of-market and locally we will see the broadcast on FOX Sports North.
It is important to note that these games do not include FOX regional games on Saturday afternoons. Those games are not shown across the country and are confined to the local interest of the area.
Most of the games in which the country will see the Twins will come during the weeknights. Minnesota will play a majority of those games on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday nights.
All 162 Minnesota Twins regular season games will be available to watch for the first time this season between FOX Sports North and national television broadcasts. Every Minnesota Twins game can also be heard on Information 1000 KSOO.
