The Orioles Will Be on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball in 2013

ESPN this afternoon released their first-half schedule for their 'Sunday Night Baseball' broadcast, and the Baltimore Orioles will be featured on April 14th against the New York Yankees.

The two teams last played on the Sunday broadcast at the end of 2008, as the network decided to cover the last game at old Yankee Stadium.

This has been a long time coming for us fans. Yes, it's only a Sunday night game on cable; however, ESPN has long overlooked the Birds for their marquee game of the week.

Maybe last season's winning and a playoff berth had something to do with the decision by the network.
