Due to Major League Baseball's national broadcast restrictions, the Baltimore Orioles 4:00 p.m. ET game in Oakland on Saturday afternoon cannot be televised by MASN. Â
Major League Baseball's agreements with national television networks forbid any regional network from broadcasting any Major League Baseball game during the window reserved for nationally televised baseball games. Â
According to MLB's website:
Due to Major League Baseball exclusivities, live games occurring each Saturday with a scheduled start time after 1:10 PM ET or before 7:05 PM ET and each Sunday with a scheduled start time after 5:00 PM ET, will be blacked out in the United States (including the territories of Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands).Â
For more information, please see MLB's blackout policy:
As the home team, Oakland chooses the game's start time and, unfortunately, decided to begin Saturday's game early.
