As part of ESPN‘s coverage of the 25th MLB season (1st year of ESPN’s 8-year deal with MLB), the net is rebranding the Sunday Night Baseball pregame edition of "Baseball Tonight" to "Baseball Tonight: Sunday Night Countdown" to better align with its national game of the week. The net also will take the rebranded program out to the ball game for several on-site shows leading into "Sunday Night Baseball" telecasts. The roadshows will air from prime locations near the ballpark. Meanwhile, starting in 2014, the net will annually televise a Wild Card game, in addition to NY and all tie-breaker games. Furthermore, it can select up to 4 Postseason Impact Games in late Sept, to showcase the top games and storylines heading into the postseason. Also starting this season, ESPN will televise holiday games on Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day.
