Because Fox Sports Midwest is televising Blues and Cardinals games Friday and they overlap, FSM is putting the baseball contest on Fox Sports Midwest Plus in the St. Louis market. That's the outlet it utilizes when it has games on simultaneously. Hockey will be on the main channel.
Outside the St. Louis market the approach will be the opposite on cable TV. Baseball will be on the regular FSM channel, hockey on FSM Plus. And in mid-Missouri and Iowa, hockey goes to a second alternate channel on cable (Mediacom 22 and 722) with the Kansas City Royals on FSM Plus.
But AT&T U-verse, DirecTV and Dish Network will have baseball on FSM Plus in all areas.
And the national production of the hockey game also will appear on NBCSN in all areas.
The Cardinals play at the New York Yankees in a contest set to begin at 6:05 p.m. The Blues are at Minnesota for the second game of a playoff series, with the listed start time of 7 p.m.
