MLB Network: Today's The Day

It's been a long-time coming, but baseball will now be available to fans 24/7/365. The MLB Network launches New Year's night with their official start coming at 6 p.m. eastern.

Whether it's classic games from long ago or up to the minute news of today, the MLB Network is promising to bring it all to fans of the game. The official network comes New Year's night at 6 p.m. eastern with their live studio show "Hot Stove Live". Until then, the network is showing clips of classic moments, interlaced with previews of their shows and behind the scenes looks at how the network was put together and the technology involved in the network.

While the network officially launches on New Year's Day, it will be an ever evolving project. Many of the network's key shows won't launch immediately and will be added to the schedule slowly. Initially, Hot Stove Live and a long list of classic games will fill most of the network time.

One of the key components of the network is their use of high tech. The network gurus have been able to take great baseball moments and use digital enhancement and imagery to give different looks from what we are used to seeing.

Here's a look at some of the upcoming shows that the MLB Network will feature.

  • All-Time Games starts with the first ever rebroadcast of Don Larsen's perfect game in the 1956 World Series. The first broadcast will be featured at 7 p.m. Eastern on New Year's Day.
  • Hot Stove Live features a round-up of all of the news and rumors from around the majors. This will be the inaugural show on MLBN, at 6 p.m. eastern on New Year's Day.
  • Ken Burns' Baseball. The epic documentary will be re-aired on MLBN Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. eastern.
  • Prime 9. This show features a look at the top nine in various baseball categories and promises to spark debate.
Many of these shows will be repeated at various times. The MLB Network is available as a free channel on DirecTV, Comcast and a number of other cable services around the country. Recommended Stories
