The streaming service Peacock is doing something different for their national broadcast of the Kansas City Royals and Detroit Tigers game Sunday at Comerica Park in Detroit. There will be no play-by-play announcer or analysts during the game. Instead, two NBC hosts and former Tigers outfielder, and current TV analyst Craig Monroe will take viewers around the park as the game is in progress with “a tour of the ballpark, unique viewpoints, conversations with special guests, and more.”

According to a press release from Peacock, “We’re going to be fans of the game, taking you to different parts of the ballpark and engaging in a way that fans watch the game in the stadium.”

Viewers will get to see a tour of Comerica Park, enhanced audio around the stadium, unique camera positions, conversations with special guests throughout the game, including Tigers superfans in attendance, and a celebration of July 4th weekend throughout the game.

The Detroit Tigers host the Kansas City Royals this Sunday, July 3 at Noon ET.
