The schedule of Major League Lacrosse (MLL), celebrating its 10th Anniversary Season as the premier professional outdoor lacrosse league, on ESPN platforms will include six games live in high definition on ESPN2 and ESPN2 HD, and 39 on ESPN3.com, ESPN’s 24/7 broadband sports network. The schedule will include the MLL All-Star Game, one semifinal and the MLL Championship Game. 

Play by play announcer Joe Beninati and analyst Quint Kessenich (four-time Johns Hopkins All-American) will once again serve as the team for the MLL on ESPN2. Beninati will be returning for his ninth season, while Kessenich will begin his tenth season as analyst.

The 2010 national television schedule released by MLL Commissioner David Gross is highlighted by three regular-season games, as well as the MLL All-Star Game from Boston on July 8, a semifinal August 21, and the Championship Game on August 22 from Annapolis, Md., as part of Major League Lacrosse Championship Weekend Presented by Warrior. 

 “Once again we are excited to work with ESPN to bring the highest level of lacrosse in HD to lacrosse fans across the country”, said MLL Commissioner David Gross. 

This summer’s MLL All-Star Game will be played July 8 at Harvard Stadium in Boston and will pit players from Team USA against the MLL All-Stars.  Team USA will use the game as preparation for this summer’s Lacrosse World Championships in Manchester, England.  During halftime of the game, stars from both teams will take place in the Bud Light Skills Competition, which will also air live. The skills include a fastest shot competition and a freestyle contest.
