    I know YES will be broadcasting this Saturday afternoon. Will this fall under the blackout rule or will we be able to see it.

    If the Old Timers game is considered part of the pre-game broadcast, we may be able to watch it, bill. If not, you might want to mosey on down to NYC and buy a ticket from a scalper.

    What about us out-of-towners who have both MLBEI and SportsPack?

    I have this also but I know that non-pre game show programming is often blacked out. My fear is this will be the case Saturday. Im not a Yankee fan but I always enjoyed this.

    I've been following Mike Mussina's career since watching him play at Stanford in 1990. It would have been fine with me if Big Papi never left the Twins.

    I just received a tweet from D* on twitter and they say it's blacked out but I don't think they understood the difference between game telecast and pre-game ceremonies.

    Lancaster,...
    If you have SportsPack, you should get the Old Timer's Day festivities this year. The feed will go off when Fox takes over for their Sat. game. Should be a very good event to witness as the Yankees pay tribute to Mr. Sheppard and Mr. Steinbrenner.

    I thought there was a link last year where people were complaining it was blacked out ?
    Many team programs and repeats are blacked out.It doesn't effect me but I hope it's open to all.It's a great show.

    I was glad it was not blacked out. Whoever is running the DirecTV twitter page really needs to get a clue.
