Even though the Orioles were contenders for much of last season, they never made an appearance on ESPN’s “Sunday Night Baseball.”
That will change in 2013.

According to the schedule posted on the Orioles’ website, Baltimore’s game at Yankee Stadium on Apr. 14 is listed as an 8:05 p.m. start.

The Orioles are scheduled for a second Sunday night game at Texas on July 21, but that’s subject to change. For the last four months of the season, ESPN chooses Sunday night games a few weeks ahead of time.

For now, there are no home Sunday night games.

From a glance at the schedule, there are at least five probable appearances for the Orioles on FOX:

Apr. 13-@ New York
Apr. 27-@ Oakland
June 29-vs.New York
Aug. 10-@ San Francisco
Aug. 24 vs. Oakland

The June 29 game will begin at 7:15 p.m. The other games begin at 4:05 p.m. Eastern Time.

FOX has not officially announced its schedule, and changes may be made.

Besides Opening Day’s 3:05 p.m. start, the Orioles are playing three weekday games:

Apr. 24 vs. Toronto
May 15 vs. San Diego
June 12 vs. Los Angeles Angels

These games start at 12:35 p.m. Single-game tickets go on sale on Jan. 19.v
