Jose Reyes To Kick Off ESPN Sunday Night Baseball, Mets Not Invited

ESPN Sunday Night Baseball will kick off the 2012 season with their Opening Night telecast featuring the defending champion St. Louis Cardinals versus Jose Reyes and the Miami Marlins on Wednesday, April 4, at 7 p.m.

This season will also mark the debut of analyst Terry Francona, who ironically replaces Bobby Valentine and joins play-by-play commentator Dan Shulman and analyst Orel Hershiser in the Sunday Night Baseball booth. Bobby V of course, replaces Francona as the new Red Sox skipper.

Not surprisingly, the Mets will not be appearing during any of their national broadcasts, but they have yet to determine their August and September broadcast schedule.
