August Friday Night Baseball schedule on Apple TV+

Apple TV+ airs eight games in August, two each week. Every week during the MLB season, Friday Night Baseball games on Apple TV+ get the call from the same crews. Crew assignments for games come out weekly.

The crews are made up of play-by-play announcers Wayne Randazzo and Alex Faust, analysts Dontrelle Willis and Ryan Spilborghs, and sideline reporters Heidi Watney and Tricia Whitaker. And breaking down the rules and calls are former MLB umpires Brian Gorman and Dale Scott.

Lauren Gardner and Siera Santos host the Friday Night Baseball studio show. Former MLB players Xavier Scruggs and Matt Joyce analyze the action along with baseball journalist Russell Dorsey and betting analyst Claudia Bellofatto.

Additional content

Here’s how Apple TV+ describes its other baseball-related content:

Apple TV+ subscribers can enjoy additional content, including the MLB Big Inning whip-around show featuring live look-ins and in-game highlights every weeknight, and a full slate of MLB-related content, including Countdown to First Pitch, MLB Daily Recap, and MLB This Week. Fans can also access additional MLB programming for free in the Apple TV app, including Friday Night Baseball condensed game recaps after the completion of the live broadcasts each week, classic games, highlights and interviews, and more.
