Tigers telecast will be joined in progress tonight
For the second time in six days, Fox Sports Detroit has Tigers, Pistons and Red Wings games all on the same night. But unlike Friday, when the Pistons game ended just in time for FS Detroit to switch to the Tigers broadcast, there’s a decent chance all three games will be going on at the same time for a stretch. With the Tigers starting last, that means tonight’s game against the Mariners will be joined in progress once the Pistons game is done.
The Pistons face the Brooklyn Nets starting at 8pm ET. Barring a really quick game, it won’t be finished by the time Felix Hernandez throws his first pitch tonight around 10:10pm ET. Once the Pistons game is over, FS Detroit will switch over to the Tigers game in progress.
Normally, there’s the FS Detroit Plus channel for such overlaps, but that’s where viewers will be watching the Red Wings face Calgary starting at 9:30pm.
For those viewers outside of Michigan and Northwest Ohio, the game will be available online at MLB.TV. Because FS Detroit is picking up the game live at some point, I don’t believe the blackout rules change for those viewers in Detroit’s market.
