Sports on TV Today: What to watch on ESPN, Fox Sports & more on Saturday, May 27th
Memorial Day weekend is upon us, which means one of the best sports weekends of the year is upon us.
Unfortunately, this year may not be as packed with NBA and NHL action as others with some Conference Finals series ending so quickly, but there’s still plenty from the world of baseball, racing, golf and more.
The weekend, led by the Indy 500 on Sunday, will force sports fans to switch channels. MLB games will be broadcast across four different channels while college softball superregions determine this year’s Women’s College World Series teams.
Here’s a look at the weekend’s sports schedule, including times and TV channels.
