ESPN announces Memorial Day Radio plans- special Tuesday Double Header

With Memorial Day being observed Monday, ESPN won't be broadcasting any games live, instead focusing on the French Open. ESPN Radio and MLB Network will air a double header on Monday, though the games will differ. However ESPN has decided to double the pleasure with a double dose of crosstown rivalries on Tuesday Night. As a result, you will be able to catch the Angels/ Dodgers game Tuesday on both ESPN and MLB Network if you live outside the Los Angeles broadcast area. Here's the press release outlining the details.
