I have been waiting all winter for Baseball Tonight. When will it be back on a regular basis? – Tony
Baseball Tonight marks its return to regular programming with a week of live shows at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex beginning this Monday through Friday, March 27. The 30-minute shows will air each day at 6 p.m. ET on ESPN2 with an additional hour-long edition at 10 p.m. on Thursday, March 26. Don’t forget, ESPN’s MLB Spring Training game coverage continues next week as well (see schedule below, all games on ESPN).
Gruden’s QB Camp returns on Tuesday, April 7, at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN2. The class of 2015 features five quarterbacks: Heisman Trophy winners Jameis Winston of Florida State and Marcus Mariota of Oregon; 2015 Cotton Bowl Classic MVP Bryce Petty (Baylor); 2nd Team All-Pac 12 selection Brett Hundley (UCLA); and 2014 MWC Offensive Player of the Year Garrett Grayson (Colorado State).
The entire Gruden’s QB Camp TV schedule will be released later this month. In addition, all past QB Camp shows will be available via ESPN Classic Video on Demand, beginning the first week of April.
A few years ago there was a story on ESPN about an older college wrestler who battled issues with drugs at one point in his life. I can’t remember his name but was hoping you could find the story. Thanks. – Dave
