The Texas Rangers have reached a television broadcast deal with Balli Sports Southwest for the upcoming 2024 season. Under the agreement, Balli Sports Southwest will produce and broadcast 153 regular season games, plus four spring training games this season. These games will also be available for streaming on the Balli Sports app and on BalliSports.com.
The Rangers expressed their delight at the new partnership, stating: “We are thrilled to have an agreement in place and look forward to partnering with Bally Sports South West for what should be a very exciting year for our club.” The team also mentioned its ongoing efforts to improve and expand the way fans can watch Texas Rangers baseball in the future.
There will be some changes to the broadcast team this season, with Dave Raymond returning for his eighth season as the lead TV voice. The analysts who replaced CJ Nitkowski are former Rangers players David Murphy, Mike Baksik Jr., and Dave Vale. Jared Sandler will play on principle for select games, and Emily Jones and Leslie McCaslin will also return as in-game reporters.
Balli Sports will report on spring training when the Rangers face the Cincinnati Reds in Cactus League action on March 14 at 8 p.m. It will also air the World Series rematch against the Arizona Diamondbacks on March 16 (3 p.m. in Surprise), the March 18 game against the Seattle Mariners (3 p.m. in Surprise), and the March 25 game against the Boston Red Sox at Globe Life Field-in Arlington, Texas
