Baseball Night in New York (BNNY)
Off-Season Mets and Yankees coverage
Mets Pre-Game Live (2018-; evening broadcasts only)
Baseball Night in New York (BNNY) is a show on SNY that covers the Mets and Yankees including non-baseball related topics during the baseball off-season from November to late February. The show premiered on November 17, 2015 to February 26, 2016 for its first season. The show is hosted by Doug Williams at six p.m. with reruns at ten p.m. The show airs every Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. It was sponsored by Land Rover for its first season. Mets general manager Sandy Alderson was a guest on February 5, 2016 featuring Andy Martino and Sal Licata who were dubbed "Panic City" for their overreaction and bleak outlook on the Mets chances for the then-upcoming 2016 season. Sandy returned on February 7, 2017 with both Martino, Licata and Jim Duquette.
On February 15, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie appeared on the show which caused an uproar over his comments regarding the Philadelphia Phillies using the Ya Gotta Believe slogan on their clubhouse wall down in Clearwater. Christie stated: “The Phillies suck. Let’s just start with that,” Christie said. “They’re from Philadelphia. They’re an awful team. They’re an angry, bitter fan base and it’s not safe for civilized people to go to Citizens Bank Park if you want to root for the other team. Ya gotta believe what? Ya gotta believe we’re awful people.” Christie's appearance was coincided with Martino, Marc Malusis and Anthony McCarron.
The show returned for a second season on November 15, 2016 where it was left sponsor-less until January 10, 2016 when it was sponsored by Jeep until February 17, 2017. The logo was featured on the monitor on the set of the show but never on the logo during the opening montage of the show.
The show premiered for season three on November 14, 2017. The show began to be sponsored by Cadillac from December 5, 2017. Starting on January 2, 2018 the show will now air every Monday to Friday at the regular six p.m. time slot. Billy Bean was a guest on February 20, 2018. Former Mets player Mo Vaughn appeared on the show on April 25, 2018. Keith Hernandez was a guest on May 15, 2018 to promote his memoir I'm Keith Hernandez. Tom Gamboa was a guest on May 29, 2018 to promote his autobiography Tom Gamboa: My Life In Baseball. Davey Johnson was a guest on May 30, 2018 to promote his memoir Davey Johnson: My Wild Ride in Baseball and Beyond.
Following the end of the first season in 2016, the show is now also a segment on SportsNite with the format remaining similar to the overall format of the show.
