Dodgers-Padres to open ESPN's 'Sunday Night Baseball'

It may be cold outside, but it's never too early to start thinking baseball.

ESPN announced Thursday that it will open its "Sunday Night Baseball" coverage with the Los Angeles Dodgers at the San Diego Padres at 8 p.m. It will mark the debut of analyst Curt Schilling on the broadcast. He replaced Orel Hershiser, who joined the SportsNet LA to be an analyst on Dodgers broadcast. Dan Shulman, John Kruk and reporter Buster Olney return to the ESPN booth.

On March 31, ESPN and ESPN2 will combine to televise five games.

The ESPN games are Chicago Cubs at Pittsburgh Pirates at 1 p.m., and St. Louis Cardinals and Cincinnati Reds at 4 p.m.

Over on ESPN2, it's the Boston Red Sox at Baltimore Orioles at 3 p.m., Colorado Rockies at Miami Marlins at 7 p.m. and Robbie Cano and the Seattle Mariners at Los Angeles Angels at 10 p.m.
