Must read

The Texas Rangers have finalized their television broadcast agreement ahead of the 2024 season.

Under a new deal between the Rangers and Bally Sports Southwest, which was finalized on Monday, the regional sports network is set to produce and air 153 regular season, plus four spring training games this season. Games will also stream on the Bally Sports app and at BallySports.com.

“We are happy to have an agreement in place and look forward to partnering with Bally Sports Southwest for what should be a very exciting year for our club,” the Rangers said in a statement. “At the same time, we will continue to work for ways to enhance and expand how our fans will be able to view Texas Rangers baseball in the future.”

Dave Raymond will return for his eighth season as lead TV play-by-play voice, while a platoon of analysts will help replace C.J. Nitkowski, who left the Rangers’ booth this offseason after eight years with the team. Those analysts include a trio of former Rangers players — David Murphy, Mike Bacsik Jr. and Dave Valle. Jared Sandler will do play-by-play for select television games, while Emily Jones and Lesley McCaslin also return as in-game reporters.
