And a two network deal is in place. ABC starts its new Monday Night package and with it, a piece of the "crown jewels" of baseball. Starting this season, ABC and NBC split the rights to the All-Star Game, LCS and World Series. In the even years, NBC televises the World Series, while ABC gets to do the All-Star Game and the LCS. In the odd years, the roles are reversed.
