Blue Jays announce 2003 television schedule
The TORONTO BLUE JAYS have partnered with ROGERS SPORTSNET and TSN
to broadcast 145 games during the 2003 season.
Rogers Sportsnet, Canada's only 24-hour regional sports broadcaster, will
broadcast 120 games this season. Rob Faulds calls play-by-play, while former
Blue Jay pitcher John Cerutti handles the analysis on the majority of games.
Tom Candiotti, another former Blue Jay, will be the analyst on games for
which Cerutti is unavailable.
Sportsnet is in the second year of a three-year contract with the Blue Jays
and has maximized the number of games it can broadcast under the current
agreement. Sportsnet will also broadcast three spring training games,
Saturday March 8 in Dunedin vs. Tampa Bay, Saturday March 15 from Dunedin
vs. the New York Yankees and Sunday, March 16 from Sarasota against the
TSN, also in the second year of a three-year contract, will broadcast 25
games this season. Rod Black will return to call the play-by-play as will
Pat Tabler, who will provide colour commentary.
The remaining 17 games will be available via a webcast in either an audio or
video format. All video webcasts will also be included in the Major
League Extra Innings package on Rogers Digital Cable. To order the Major
