XM is starting off the regular 2008 MLB season next week with three live broadcasts of the Boston-Oakland game, including one broadcast in Japanese.
The Sox will play the A's in front of a sold-out crowd at the Tokyo Dome at 6:05am ET. XM will air both the Red Sox radio broadcast and the A's broadcast - as well as a Japanese-language broadcast - on three separate channels.
For Opening Night on March 30th, the Washington Nationals will play their first game at Nationals Park, their brand-new stadium near the U.S. Capitol. The Nationals will host the Atlanta Braves starting at 8:05pm ET. XM will air the Nationals broadcast, the Braves broadcast, and the ESPN Radio broadcast of the game. MLB Home Plate (ch 175) will also be live from Nationals Park throughout the day.
The traditional Opening Day on March 31th will bring 14 baseball games to the XM lineup, starting with the New York Yankees' season opener against the Toronto Blue Jays at 1:05pm ET. This will be the last Opening Day game at Yankee Stadium - as the Yank's new stadium is expected to be completed in 2009, and will subsequently demolish the old one - and XM's MLB Home Plate channel will also be reporting live from the site.
