MLB International is a division of Major League Baseball primarily responsible for international broadcasts of games.[1] Prominently, in partnership with DirecTV and MLB Network, it produces and syndicates the All-Star Game, NLCS, ALCS, and the World Series, as well as the Caribbean Series, the Australian Baseball League Championship Series and the World Baseball Classic to broadcasters in over 200 countries, and the American Forces Network for U.S. military troops abroad.

Commentators[edit]

From 1996 until 2003 and again starting in 2010, Gary Thorne[2] served as the play-by-play man for the World Series on Armed Forces Radio and MLB International.[3][4]

Dave O'Brien provided commentary for MLB International's coverage of the World Series from 2004 until 2009. O'Brien teamed with his usual ESPN partner Rick Sutcliffe on broadcasts of the World Series and the American League Championship Series for MLB International.

From 1996–2002, and since 2010-2014, MLB International broadcasts the League Championship Series alternately, with the American League Championship Series in even-numbered years and the National League Championship Series in odd-numbered years.[5]

Since 2015, Matt Vasgersian has served as the play-by-play commentator; for the 2016 World Series, he was joined by Buck Martinez (television play-by-play of the Toronto Blue Jays, and former color commentator for TBS) on color.[6]
