The Southeastern Conference has announced its official 2012 SEC Baseball television schedule, the third under the league’s 15-year agreement with ESPN. The entire package will include 66 broadcasts in 2012. In addition, all games from the 2012 SEC Tournament will continue to be televised, with the championship game airing again nationally on ESPN2.
“The success and popularity of baseball in our conference is at an all-time high,” said SEC Commissioner Mike Slive. “We are proud to be able to offer this amount of television coverage to both our teams and our fans.”
The television package is derived from broadcasts on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, FSN, SportSouth and CSS. In addition, ESPN3 will also stream most broadcasts live online.
“This package continues to move our baseball exposure to new levels,” SEC Consultant for Television Larry Templeton stated. “Fans of SEC Baseball will be able to follow the season like never before.”
SEC schools maintain the rights to air additional games not included in the official SEC package with various television outlets, including official SEC television partners. More than 50-60 additional games are set to be broadcast, bringing the total number of SEC baseball games broadcast in 2012 to 120 games or more.
