DXing Baseball April 19-20, 2019, 2018
« on: April 19, 2019, 2318 UTC »
So, with the odd start of this baseball season, many Friday day games or teams off on Fridays, this turns out to be the first Friday to DX baseball.  Tonight, many clubs that I can receive are playing clubs that I can't receive which increases the potential number of games I can DX. The Cubs played a day games, there are NBA & NHL playoffs which may take precedence in some markets, and we are due for heavy rain on the east coast which might impact reception and whether the game is played (two games already rained out by 2000z).  With 2 rain outs and a day game, I may just DX whatever baseball I can receive including the minors. 

2309 960am  WELI New Haven, CT  Royals/Yanks "Well Suzyn I thank you, good evening everyone.  CC's first pitch is a strike.  No score as we just get started". Excellent reception - Yankee affiliate

2311 1280am WADO New York Royals/Yanks "CC (then some Spanish) Kansas City cero, Yanquis cero first". Yankee Spanish Flagship.  Excellent reception

2315 600am WICC Bridgeport, CT Royals/Yanks "Right handed Junis on the mound.  Gardner takes a strike, no score here in the bottom of the first."  Excellent reception - Yankee affiliate

2321 660am WFAN New York Royals/Yanks "Lined to right for a base hit.  Glaybor grounds to short for a force at second.  One hit, one left on base, and after one - no score."  Excellent reception.  Yankee Flagship.

2325 1080am WTIC Hartford, CT Red Sox/Rays "The batter is now Garcia.  They call him Minnie Mickey since he was with Tigers.  He's from Venezuela.  One out runners at first and second, no score in the bottom of the first."  Excellent reception.  Red Sox affiliate.

2332  1500am WFED Washington, DC Nats/Marlins "and the count 2 balls and 2 strikes.  he can hit it out to any part of the ballpark.  Swing and a miss for the third out.  After one inning, Washington 1, Miami nothing". Excellent reception.  Nationals flagship.

2340 980am WCAP Lowell, MA Red Sox/Rays "Mookie makes a leap, did he make the catch?  No, he just missed it. Lowe has a home run, 1-0 Rays". Good reception, stepped on by Red Sox affiliate

2256  1140am WRVA Richmond, VA Nats/Marlins "2-2 count on Eaton. Swing a miss, Eaton is out.  We're here in the third in a 1-1 game.  Redon will try to break the tie.  0-2 pitch to Redon is fouled back". Nationals affiliate.  Excellent reception

Mets flagship.  Excellent reception.

0031 620am WVMT Burlington, VT Royals/Yanks "So the play goes 5-3, the Yanks have 1 run on 1 hit in the inning with the homer.  After 5 innings, 3-1 Yanks.  ID Your voice in Burlington and Plattsburgh WVMT". Yanks affiliate.  Excellent reception.

0043 1230am WCMC Wildwood, NJ  Phils/Rockies "that's the second strike to Kingery.  Now strike three and there is one down.  No score, top of the first.  Harper singles through short and there are runners on the corners.  Hoskins singles to left and the Phils go up 1-0."  Phillies affiliate.  Good reception

MDK2 - Congrats, some match between City/Spurs on Wednesday.  My sons and I texted 3,000 miles apart throughout match, thought City did it at end.  Watch, City will win by 5 versus Spurs tomorrow.

CC's first pitch is a strike.  No score as we just get started.

That's great.
