Blue Jays Announce 2008 TV Schedule



    144 Games All Available in High Definition

    TORONTO, Feb. 21 /CNW/ - The TORONTO BLUE JAYS have partnered with ROGERS
SPORTSNET, CBC and TSN to broadcast 144 games during the 2008 season. For the
first time in the clubs history, all broadcasts will be shown in high
definition by all three networks.
    ROGERS SPORTSNET, now entering its tenth season as a Blue Jays
broadcaster, will produce 100 games, including the season opener at Yankee
Stadium in New York. The Blue Jays home-opener vs. the World Series Champion
Boston Red Sox on April 4 is also featured on the SPORTSNET calendar.
    The CBC will produce 24 contests beginning with a June 7 game against
East Division rival, the Baltimore Orioles. The CBC and the Blue Jays
re-united last season to continue a long history that began with the clubs
inaugural season in 1977.
    In its 25th consecutive season as a Blue Jays broadcaster, TSN will
produce 20 games, commencing with the April 3 contest in New York. The TSN
schedule will feature seven September games.
