May 19, 2014


Broadcasts for every game of the BIG EAST Baseball Championship presented by New York Life will be available to fans through live streams on and national coverage of Sunday's title game on FOX Sports 1. 

LINACRE MEDIA will work with the BIG EAST Conference to produce all five opening round games. The broadcasts will be available free of charge on the BIG EAST All-Access player, located under the "WATCH" tab on the conference homepage.

An experienced production team plus FOX Sports graphics will provide live stream viewers with a BIG EAST network look and feel. Emmy-award winner and New York broadcasting icon Spencer Ross will be the play-by-play announcer and former St. John's player and NYIT head coach Bob Hirschfield will provide color commentary.

"All involved with the broadcasts are extremely pleased to be a part of BIG EAST baseball," said Brooklyn native Spencer Ross. " There's just something about the BIG EAST and New York, and in particular baseball in Brooklyn, that has the makings of a special event."

Championship play begins Thursday with a doubleheader featuring regular-season champion Creighton against Xavier followed by a battle between local rivals St. John's and Seton Hall.
