The first matchup between the two hottest rookies in baseball - the Nationals' Stephen Strasburg and the Atlanta Braves' Jason Heyward - is coming up on Monday and as usual, MASN will have high def coverage of every pitch.
The matchup will also be enjoyed by a national TV audience as the networks continue to realize the power of Stephen Strasburg.
ESPN2 announced it will televise the Nationals' game in Atlanta on Monday night, showing Strasburg's fifth big-league start and the first in what should be a long series of confrontations with Heyward, the talented Braves rookie outfielder.
Locally, the game will be televised on MASN HD and rebroadcast that same evening at 11:30pm.
This season, viewers in MASN's seven state region have enjoyed maximum access coverage of Strasburg mania, including his first spring training start, multiple minor league starts, a goose bump inducing major league debut, and Strasburg's continued dominance of major league hitters in subsequent starts.
