Don’t expect to watch the first pitch of tomorrow night’s Mets-Marlins game on TV. It won’t be on.
The game at Dolphin Stadium is scheduled to start at 6:25 p.m. That’s during Fox’s exclusive Saturday national telecast window, which prevents local broadcasts of games scheduled to start from 1:10-7 p.m.
Mets coverage on SNY will begin at 7.
Marlins president David Samson said Friday the early start is to accommodate a postgame concert by Flo Rida.
The game originally was set to start at 6:10 p.m., but the Marlins agreed to push back the start time by 15 minutes following discussions with the Mets, who also spoke with the commissioner’s office.
