FOX Sports North has unveiled its 157-game Twins broadcast schedule, and no analyst will get more time alongside play-by-play voice Dick Bremer than Justin Morneau. 

The former American League MVP and National League batting champion will be in the booth for 57 games. Bert Blyleven will do 30 games while Roy Smalley (26), Jack Morris (23), LaTroy Hawkins (17) and Jim Kaat (10) do the rest. 

"We have a well-rounded and very talented analyst lineup again this season, each person bringing a different and unique approach to the broadcast booth," said FSN Director of Communications Becky Ross Mielke. 

Sid Hartman of the Star Tribune previously reported that Morneau was set to do 80 games. 

Bremer is back for his 37th season of Twins baseball. In addition to the six former players providing analysis, the broadcast crew will feature sideline reporters Marney Gellner and Audra Martin. 

The pre- and post-game shows ("Twins Live") will include hosts Anthony LaPanta and Annie Sabo, ex-Twins catcher Tim Laudner and former All-Star closer Glen Perkins. 

After televising multiple spring training games, the FSN regular-season broadcast schedule begin with the season opener on Thursday, March 26 at 3 p.m. when the Twins take on the Oakland Athletics. 

The Home Opener on April 2 will include a full one-hour pre-game show before the first pitch is thrown at 3:10 p.m.
