Sun Sports to show 150 Tampa Bay Rays games, expand pregame show

Sun Sports today announced a 150-game schedule of Tampa Bay Rays telecasts, along with the addition of a full 30-minute pregame show for all road games.

Play-by-play man Dewayne Staats, analyst Brian Anderson and pre-/in-/post-game host Todd Kalas are all returning as well.

The new pregame show for road games will be staged in a new Fox Sports studio in Fort Lauderdale and hosted by Barry LeBrock. Kalas will continue to host the pregame show for home games from the Trop, and handle postgame duties. Former big-leaguer Orestes Destrade and Laura McKeeman will also be part of the coverage team. No longer included is Angela Jacobs.

Sun Sports will also produce nine episodes of Inside the Rays. A preseason special will air March 25.
