To my knowledge and research, these are the 2021 50,000 watt Class A stations carrying major league baseball in English this year.  There are other 50,000 watt stations broadcasting baseball but they are class B stations.  Please free feel to add and/or correct.  All are flagships unless noted.  Affiliates may carry alternative programming at times (Blue Jays' Montreal Affiliate Hockey/Soccer).  A loss from last season according to research is WFED 1500 former flagship of the Nationals.  Also, WMVP is a little less favorable here than the White Sox former WGN.

Cool. Something to DX for during the summer season. I already can receive at least three of those stations regularly (KIRO, KNBR & KOA). Will have to try for some of the others.

Thanks for posting the list.
