It's a brave new world for Astros fans. Because of the ROOT Sports Southwest deal, many of you who were locked out of watching the Astros for years can now see the hometown nine all season in 2015.

Before we get there, the Astros will be on a bigger stage. ESPN announced its April schedule for baseball broadcasts. The Astros won't be on Sunday nights for the month, but they did make the cut on Opening Day.

The Astros-Indians game on Opening Day will be aired by ESPN at 7 p.m. It's one of four games that day ESPN will pick up.

Here's the rest of ESPN's schedule for the first month of the season.
