INDIANS/BROWNS scheduling clash, times and TV scheduling moved Sept 19 & 22

Recommended Posts

CLEVELAND, Ohio — A pair of upcoming Cleveland Indians home games have new start times, including one that now puts the game in conflict with the Cleveland Browns’ first Sunday Night Football appearance in 11 years.

The Indians announced that their Sept. 19 home game against Detroit at Progressive Field will begin at 7:15 p.m., five minutes later than originally scheduled, due to the game being broadcast nationally on FOX. The game will air locally on WJW-FOX 8 and will not be televised on SportsTime Ohio.

Additionally, ESPN has selected the Tribe’s Sept. 22 game against Philadelphia to be the Sunday Night Baseball national game. First pitch will be moved from 1:10 p.m. to a new start time of 6:37 p.m. All gates will open at 5:30 p.m. with the right field gate opening at 4:30 p.m.

Limited tickets are still available for both games on Indians.com.

The Sept. 22 change moves the game into conflict with Week 3 of the NFL season as the Cleveland Browns host the defending NFC champion Los Angeles Rams in their first Sunday night game since 2008. The Browns lost that game 10-6 to Pittsburgh. Kickoff between the Browns and Rams is scheduled for 8:20 p.m., less than two hours after the new first pitch time at Progressive Field.

Thursday, Sept. 19 vs. Detroit at 7:15 p.m. on FOX (WJW 8 locally)

· First pitch moved from 7:10 p.m. to 7:15 p.m.

· SportsTime Ohio will not broadcast the game.

Sunday, Sept. 22 vs. Philadelphia at 6:37 p.m. on ESPN
