Dodgers-Boston Red Sox game selected for ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball on August 25.

ESPN logoThe Dodgers’ game against the Boston Red Sox scheduled for August 25 was chosen today for ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball telecast, which will begin at 5 p.m. local time and 8 p.m. Eastern. Earlier this month, the Dodgers-Tampa Bay Rays game scheduled for August 11 was also chosen by ESPN for a Sunday night telecast.

The Dodgers are the only team based outside the Eastern time zone that will be featured on Sunday night baseball in August. The September SNB participants will be announced in two weeks.

On a practical level, there’s some good news for the Dodgers: Neither Sunday night game is followed by a game in Los Angeles. The Dodgers will stay in the Eastern time zone, traveling from Tampa to New York, for an August 12 game against the Mets. After their Sunday night game against the Red Sox, the Dodgers visit the Chicago Cubs.
