Sportsnet Announces 2012 Jays Coverage

Sportsnet has announced details of their Blue Jays broadcast schedule for this season.  All 162 Jays games will air on Sportsnet or Sportsnet One. Jays Connected returns as Jays Central. Jamie Campbell and Gregg Zaun will continue to host the pre-game show, while Buck Martinez and Pat Tabler return to the broadcast booth.

Here is Sportsnet’s press release.

Play ball! Sportsnet is taking fans to every Blue Jays game this season with comprehensive coverage across TV, radio, online, mobile and print, headlined by all 162 games broadcast on Sportsnet and Sportsnet 590 The Fan. Canadians will get their first look at the Blue Jays in regular season action – new uniforms and all – during the season opener on Thursday, April 5, as Toronto takes on the Indians in Cleveland at 2:30 p.m. ET / 11:30 a.m. PT on Sportsnet East, Ontario, West and Pacific. Plus, fans at work or on the go can catch live streaming of all 162 games on desktop and mobile via RogersAnyplaceTV.com and Rogers Live Mobile app, with tablet availability coming this April (please see full details below).

Former Blue Jay and World Series Champion Gregg Zaun and host Jamie Campbell set the stage for every game with Blue Jays Central, airing on TV 30 minutes prior to all Blue Jays broadcasts. Blue Jays Central also keeps fans up-to-date on all the latest and greatest from around Major League Baseball, and includes Zaun’s unique inside look at the game of baseball with the popular segment Zaun 101. Two other former Blue Jays round out Sportsnet’s television broadcast team as Buck Martinez returns to the broadcast booth to call the play-by-play action alongside analyst Pat Tabler.

Following the opening series in Cleveland, the Blue Jays and Sportsnet return home to Rogers Centre in Toronto for the much anticipated – and sold out – Honda Home Opener versus the Boston Red Sox on Monday, April 9. Coverage gets underway with a special edition of Sportsnet Connected and Blue Jays Central at 6 p.m. ET on Sportsnet East, Ontario, West and Pacific. In addition, Sportsnet 590 The Fan and Sportsnet ONE will broadcast Prime Time Sports with host Bob McCown live from Rogers Centre starting at 4 p.m. ET.

Prior to the start of the regular season, Sportsnet’s best-in-class team of analysts including Campbell, Zaun, Martinez and Hazel Mae, prep fans for what to expect for the 2012 baseball season with the MLB Preview Show on Sunday, April 1 at 4 p.m. ET / 1 p.m. PT (Sportsnet East, Ontario, West and Pacific). The 90-minute broadcast includes features on Blue Jays superstars Jose Bautista and Ricky Romero, while Hazel Mae speaks with Detroit Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder; Ozzie Guillen, manager of the Miami Marlins; and five-time World Series Champion pitcher Mariano Rivera.

Capping off the MLB Preview Show is Fair Ball, a 30-minute documentary which follows Gregg Zaun on an emotional and inspiring journey to Uganda, where he learned the transcendent power of the game as a little league baseball team from Langley B.C. traveled half way around the globe to play Uganda’s little league baseball team on their home soil, thanks to the efforts of Right to Play and others.

Sportsnet’s comprehensive Blue Jays 2012 broadcast package includes 127 games on Sportsnet East, Ontario, West, and Pacific, with the remaining 35 games nationally distributed on Sportsnet One. All games are broadcast in HD. Please see below for complete broadcast schedule.

Sportsnet 590 The FAN is home to all 162 Blue Jays games, with Calgary’s Sportsnet 960 The Fan also broadcasting 60 games in 2012. The voice of summer, Jerry Howarth, returns to call the games alongside Alan Ashby. Mike Wilner rounds out the in-game team as host. In addition to game broadcasts, Sportsnet 590 The Fan fuels fans all summer with exclusive Blue Jays content, including weekly Blue Jays interviews and frequent game day updates.

  1. Do you know the details for “RogersAnyPlaceTV.com”? Do you need to have a Rogers Cable subscription or will you still be able to watch all the games and stuff if you have a Rogers mobile subscription?

    • It’s what they renamed RogersOnDemand.com. Games were streamed last year and they were available to any Rogers customer but from the release it sounds like they are limiting it to cable subscribers this year.

  2. why did they change the name of the pregame show to Jays Central? it’s been Jays Connected in the past

    • I think it had to do with part of the re-brand of the network. All shows that are not the main “Connected” news show are now refereed to as “Central” like Hockey Central & UFC Central.

What do you think?
