Schedule as of 7/20/20; Dates and times subject to change

 

NBC Sports California’s A’s telecasts feature the Emmy Award-winning broadcast team of Glen Kuiper (play-by-play) and Ray Fosse (color analyst).  Former A’s pitcher Dallas Braden will join Kuiper for select telecasts. Road games will be called virtually from the Oakland Coliseum.

Willis, a World Series champion (2003) and two-time All-Star pitcher (2003, 2005), played for nine seasons in the Major Leagues. In 2000, he was selected in the 8th round of the MLB Draft by the Chicago Cubs before being traded to the Florida Marlins. As member of the Marlins (2003-2007), Willis won NL Rookie of the Year honors in 2003 and was instrumental in the Marlins’ World Series championship run. In 2005, he became the 12th African American pitcher to win 20 games in a season, joining the exclusive “Black Aces” club, a group of black pitchers who have won at least 20 games in a single season. Willis also played for the Detroit Tigers (2008-2010), Arizona Diamondbacks (2010) and Cincinnati Reds (2011). In 2015, he joined FOX Sports as an MLB studio analyst, and he will continue his duties with that network. Willis was born in Oakland and attended Encinal High School in Alameda.
