For a few decades now, the long-tradition of over-the-air broadcasts of major league baseball games has been disappearing. Today, an announcement from Fox Sports North (FSN) suggests, the era is just about over.
The network and the team announced that all Minnesota Twins games — except for a few that are on the national Fox broadcasts — will be on cable. There will be no local over-the-air partner for the team.
It’s a trend that’s not exclusive to baseball, of course. Last month, the Los Angeles Lakers announced that starting next year, there’ll be no more “free access” to its games on TV.
