SYDNEY, 30 January - The 2013 Australian Baseball League Championship Series, pitting the two-time reigning ABL champions Perth Heat against the Canberra Cavalry, will be televised live on Fox Sports 2 from 8-10 February.

The broadcast schedule for the best-of-three ABL Championship Series is as follows:

ABL Championship Series Matchup Date Time
Game One Perth at Canberra Friday, 8 February 7pm
Game Two Perth at Canberra Saturday, 9 February 7pm
Game Three (if necessary) Perth at Canberra Sunday, 10 February 7pm

Game three will be played if the Heat and Cavalry have split the first two games. The winner of this series will clinch the Claxton Shield as the ABL's champions.
