SiriusXM Radio

The subscription based audio service offers most home-team broadcasts on MLB Channels 176-189. MLB Network channel 89 often presents live games. ESPN telecasts can be heard on channel 80. Every MLB team has its own SXM channel as well, and those can be heard online.

Traditional radio

For those who still like to tune in on radio, there are probably still some out-of-town stations that you can find for games, mostly on evenings. Boston Red Sox games still air on Hartford's WTIC (1080-AM), and that signal is good during day-time hours. Albany's WOFX (980-AM) also carries the Red Sox, and its signal may be good in northern regions. Chicago White Sox games air on WMVP (1000-AM). St. Louis Cardinals games air on KMOX (1120-AM).
