[SOCCER ON THE AIR] Baseball's popularity in cities like Kansas City and St. Louis is legendary because of its media reach across the Midwest. Sporting Kansas City's reach is growing with the expansion of its television network into nine states.

Beginning with Saturday's home opener against FC Dallas (7:30 p.m. CT kickoff) --  the first of 23 broadcasts -- the Sporting Kansas City Television Network will feature eight affiliates reaching fans in nine states across the Midwest.
