Sooner Sports TV will provide coverage of all University of Oklahoma baseball and softball home games and a weekly show devoted to the two sports. All of the Sooners' 31 baseball games at L. Dale Mitchell Park and 18 softball games at Marita Hynes Field not broadcast by another national network will air live on a Fox Sports network or online at SoonerSports.tv.
Beginning March 4, Sooner Sports TV will also introduce “Rounding Third,” a 10-episode highlight show co-hosted by Chad McKee and baseball and softball coaches Sunny Golloway and Patty Gasso, who will alternate appearances in studio.
Sooner Sports TV will produce 25 baseball games for live telecasts on FS Southwest or FS Oklahoma and Fox College Sports (FCS), with the remaining six available via webcast at SoonerSports.tv, starting with a 3 p.m. game Friday against Hofstra. TV coverage on FS Oklahoma begins at 3 p.m. Tuesday when OU hosts Arkansas-Pine Bluff.
The No. 1 OU softball team is scheduled for seven live Sooner Sports TV broadcasts on Fox networks, with the three-game Iowa State series on tape delay, and remaining home contests exclusively on the web at SoonerSports.tv.
Bruce Haertl and McKee will handle play-by-play of baseball and softball. Jay Payton will serve as the baseball analyst for 19 games, with former Sooner Caleb Bushyhead and former OU sports information director Mike Treps also appearing. The softball analyst is still to be named.
