At least 43 games involving Atlantic Coast Conference baseball teams are scheduled to be carried nationally and/or regionally by ESPNU, ESPN2, ESPN3 and RSN (Regional Sports Network) during the 2012 season.
All 12 conference teams are represented on this year’s schedule. In addition, all 13 games of the ACC Championship will be televised live for the fifth straight year. The first four days of the tournament, set for May 23 through May 27 at Greensboro, N.C.’s NewBridge Bank Park, will be carried by RSN. The championship game, scheduled for noon on Sunday, May 27, will be telecast nationally by ESPN2.
Along with the slate of 43 games announced Monday as part of the ACC’s Olympic Sport coverage for the upcoming spring season, additional games will be carried by the conference’s institutional partners and the ACC Digital Network. The complete listing of those games will be released at a later date.
In addition to the six games announced last month as part of the ACC Monday package on ESPNU, the ACC national/regional schedule will include at least 24 head-to-head matchups between teams that participated in the 2011 NCAA Tournament. The schedule opens March 4, with Clemson playing host to two-time defending champion South Carolina in a high-profile nonconference rivalry game on ESPN3. Florida State’s home game vs. Florida will also be carried by ESPN3 on April 10.
Within the ACC, all three games of the Virginia-Florida State (March 17-19), NC State-North Carolina (March 24-26), Miami-Clemson (March 30-April 1), Georgia Tech-North Carolina (April 20-22) and Florida State-Clemson (May 12-14) will be carried via a combination of ESPNU, ESPN3 and RSN.
