Three upcoming Notre Dame baseball games will be televised by stations in the respective competition areas.

Notre Dame fans throughout the state of Arizona can watch broadcasts of this weekend’s games at Arizona State (Sat., Feb. 22. 3:00 p.m. and Sun., Feb. 23, 1:00 p.m.), to be shown live on the statewide independent station KAZ-TV (see www.kaz.tv for list of affiliates, including channel 27 in Phoenix).

Fox Sports Net North will provide a live broadcast of the Notre Dame-Minnesota game on Saturday, March 1, at the Metrodome – with that start time moved from 1:30 to 2:00 p.m. CST to accommodate the broadcast. The elite four-team Metrodome Tournament – which recently was named the Dairy Queen Classic – also will see the Irish face Nebraska (a 2001 and ’02 College World Series participant) and Wake Forest (a top-8 national seed in the 2002 NCAAs).

Fox Sports Net North is available to various cable sports-package subscribers (including Direct TV, at channel 641), in addition to cable systems throughout the upper Midwest (a South Bend local station also may provide a feed of the broadcast, check back to und.com for updates).

The ND-ASU games will not be available on satellite.

The University of North Florida also is looking into securing a broadcast arrangement with a local or regional station for the March 9th game (3:00 p.m.) between the Irish and UNF, which is part of the annual Kennel Club Classic.
