The MLB postseason is set to take the field tonight beginning with the 2014 AL Wild Card on TBS featuring the Athletics/Royals at 8p. Ernie Johnson handles play-by-play for the game with analysts Ron Darling and Cal Ripken and reporter Matt Winer. Pregame coverage will begin at 7:30p on the channel, hosted by Casey Stern with analysts Pedro Martinez and Gary Sheffield. Turner Sports also announced that the network’s coverage of the 2014 MLB Postseason will also include: 6X Cameras, Super Slo Mo Cameras and Chevrolet Pitch Trax. In a first, Facebook will partner with Turner Sports throughout its MLB Postseason coverage and will be embedded in the TBS control room in Atlanta during the opening week of the postseason providing Facebook and Instagram content in real-time to best support on-air social integrations. Content will include fan maps, polls and fan profiles for each team participating in the postseason.

Meanwhile, the network’s exclusive American League Division Series (ALDS) coverage will begin Thursday with Tigers/Orioles at 5:30p if KC wins the Wild Card and 6p if Oakland takes the game. The winner of the Wild Card will then face the Angels later that day starting at 9p if KC wins and 9:30 if Oakland emerges victorious.

ESPN will showcase the NL Wild Card at 8p with Giants/Pirates on deck. If Pittsburgh wins, Friday’s schedule will see Pirates/Nationals at noon on FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes, Tigers/Orioles on TBS at 3p, Cardinals/Dodgers on FOX Sports 1/Fox Deportes at 6:30 and the AL Wild Card winner/Angles later that evening. A Giants victory will push Tigers/Baltimore to noon and Giants/Nationals to 3p.

MLB Network officially gets in the game with Game Two of the NLDS series pitting the Cardinals/Dodgers. Bob Costas, Harold Reynolds, Tom Verducci and Ken Rosenthal handle microphone duties on Saturday at 9:37p. The channel will also carry a second NLDS game on Monday, October 6 between the Nationals and the winner of the NL Wild Card game. The games will see the channel use its real-time defensive alignment graphic “Shift Trax,” as well as PITCHf/x, and 4K (Ultra HD) and X-Mo camera technology.
