ESPN 3D To Connect With Home Run Derby, LL World Series

Publish date:

Now in its sophomore season, ESPN 3D will serve up the home run competition from Major League Baseball's All-Star Game in Phoenix and extensive action from Williamsport.
ESPN3D, which will televise action from Wimbledon on a tape-delayed basis, will air the State Farm Home Run Derby on July 11 at 8 p.m. (ET), and then kick off a pair of matches from the World Football Challenge, pitting LA Galaxy and Real Madrid on July 16 at 10 p.m. and Cristiano Ronaldo's side against Chivas Guadalajara four nights later at 11 p.m.
The service will then air 17 games from the Little League World Series, starting on Aug. 18. The network also said it will up its ante on the college gridiron.
"It's an exciting time for ESPN 3D as it enters its second year of providing compelling action of some of the biggest sporting events," said Bryan Burns, vice president, strategic business planning in announcing the new entries. "Our programming continues to evolve and grow. Last year we presented 11 regular season college football games and this fall we will have 20 regular season games plus six bowl games, including The Allstate BCS National Championship. Information concerning games and dates will be available later this summer."

ESPN3D just wrapped up its coverage of the 2011 NBA Finals.
