In its 20th year as a network, FOX Sports Arizona will broadcast its most Arizona Diamondbacks games ever in 2017.

Either FOX Sports Arizona or FOX Sports Arizona Plus will televise 161 Diamondbacks games this season, with the July 8 game versus the Cincinnati Reds being broadcast nationally on FS1.

Steve Berthiaume and Bob Brenly are back as announcers for their fifth year together, while Jody Jackson and Todd Walsh will again be in charge of the pre- and post-game shows. Mark Grace, Brandon Webb and Kate Longworth will be joining them throughout the season.

For the second consecutive season, 25 games will be offered in Spanish on FOX Sports Arizona Plus. These games are from weekend home series beginning in May, including series against the Pittsburgh Pirates (May 12-14), Milwaukee Brewers (June 9-10), Philadelphia Phillies (June 23-25), Colorado Rockies (July 1-2), Reds (July 7 & 9), Washington Nationals (July 21-23), Chicago Cubs (Aug 11-13), San Francisco Giants (Aug. 25-27), San Diego Padres (Sept. 8-9) and Miami Marlins (Sept. 23-24). Oscar Soria and Rodrigo Lopez return as announcers for the broadcasts.

All of the games will also be available for viewing through the FOX Sports GO app for subscribers of participating video providers.

Following the end of Cactus League competition, the Diamondbacks will open the season at home on Saturday, April 2 against the Giants.

Arizona hopes to improve upon its 69-93 record from last season in 2017.
