Rays To Get National Spotlight In August

The August 1 game at Tropicana Field between the Rays and the Boston Red Sox will be getting a national spotlight, as the Rays announced Saturday that the game has been selected by ESPN to be their Sunday Night Baseball game.

The game, which was originally slated to start at 1:10, will now start at 7:08 pm, and air on ESPN and not Bally Sports Sun.  It will be Tampa Bay’s fifth Sunday night broadcast at home all time, and the first Sunday Night Baseball game at Tropicana Field since July 17, 2011, which was also against Boston.
