The Columbia Fireflies will have a new radio home for the 2018 season.

The Fireflies’ 140-game schedule will be broadcast on Fox Sports Radio 1400 AM. Fans can also stream games live on https://foxsportsradio1400.iheart.com/ and on iHeartRadio.

Every Fireflies broadcast will feature the pregame show, which will begin 15 minutes before first pitch.

Kevin Fitzgerald will return for his third season as the voice of the Fireflies. Sam Hyman will join Fitzgerald in the booth for the second season.

“We are excited to join the Fox Sports Radio family for the 2018 season,” Fireflies team president John Katz said in a news release. “Fox Sports is synonymous with Major League Baseball, and there are great synergies between the Fireflies and iHeartMedia’s family of stations in the Midlands. We are really looking forward to working with their team.”

Opening Day for the Fireflies, the Class A affiliate of the New York Mets, is April 5 at 7:05 p.m. against the August GreenJackets, the San Francisco Giants’ affiliate.

Individual game tickets and season ticket packages can be purchased at the Fireflies box office, by calling 803-726-HITS or at FirefliesTickets.com.
