Major League Baseball and ESPN have agreed to move the September 27th Boston Red Sox-New York Yankees game in New York from 8:00 p.m. (EDT) to 1:00 p.m. (EDT) so as to not conflict with Yom Kippur.
"I am pleased we were able to resolve this sensitive issue that impacted many baseball fans and are able to move the game at Yankee Stadium to 1:00 p.m. (ET)," said Baseball Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig. "I want to thank our broadcast partners at ESPN, especially ESPN President George Bodenheimer, for their support and for working with us to adjust the timing of this game which has allowed us to solve this conflict."
The game will be shown exclusively on ESPN.
