SportsNet LA said Larry King At Bat will bow March 18, featuring interviews with baseball greats and experts, celebrities and Dodger folk. Larry King‘s premiere guest will be Orel Hershiser, who pitched the Dodgers to their most recent World Series victory in 1988 and is the newest member of the team’s announcing crew. SportsNet LA, which was announced 13 months ago, was born of the 25-year multibillion-dollar deal Time Warner Cable inked with the Dodgers for broadcast rights.
