JULY 20, 2020 – It’s a week of baseball returns to the Neuhoff AM stations, plus a week of replays for Cubs fans, on WDZ 1050 AM.
The Major League Baseball season will officially begin on Thursday night, nearly four months late due to the COVID-19 virus. The defending World Series Champion, Washington Nationals will host the New York Yankees (6 p.m., CT) to start the 60-game 2020 campaign, which can be seen on ESPN television, and also heard on ESPNDecatur 1050 AM (WDZ).

All 60 Cubs and Cardinals games can be heard on the Neuhoff stations, plus any postseason games, set to start in late September.
Additionally, each team has made one final preseason exhibition game available to the radio networks, and each can be heard on Wednesday.
