3. New York Yankees vs. Texas Rangers - #NYYvsTEX

Details: Monday, July 22 @ 7:05 PM ET - Rangers Ballpark in Arlington - Arlington, TX - ESPN

Why Watch: A-Rod returns to the Yankees in a Monday night matchup vs. the MLB strikeout leader, Yu Darvish. The Rangers roster lineup is packing a punch with four hitters with 10 or more HRs. Can the Yankees pitching slow down the red hot Rangers? Get ready for a memorable MLB game Monday night.

#5ToFollow Insider: Mina Park - @minapark

Mina is a Texan, so be prepared for her Rangers ramblings during ESPN's Monday Night Baseball. She's glued to the game as a MLB Fan Cave Dweller, so you will not find someone who has seen more baseball this season than Ms. Park.


4. Lacrosse Champion All-American Showcase - #LAX

Details: Tuesday, July 23 @ 12:00 PM ET - ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex - Kissimmee, FL - ESPN3

Why Watch: There are four teams in the Champion All-American Showcase: Team Freedom, Team Liberty, Team Pride, and Team Spirit. This event features nearly 200 of America's elite lacrosse players and is known to be the premiere event to see the future stars of the sport. Take a look at the nation's top LAX talent Tuesday afternoon.

#5ToFollow Insider: US Lacrosse - @USLacrosse

The official feed of the national team will be live from Kissimmee at the All-American Showcase, highlighting the sport's top talent at the high school level. Follow along for player profiles and information on where these players could be heading to play on the collegiate level.


5. New York Liberty vs. Indiana Fever - #WNBA

Details: Tuesday, July 23 @ 7:00 PM ET - Bankers Life Fieldhouse - Indianapolis, IN - ESPN2

Why Watch: We've got a WNBA Eastern Conference contest Tuesday night as the Liberty and Fever tip off on ESPN2. Though both are below .500, their records do not reflect the talent that is on the hardwood. The Fever won the WNBA last season, but have been derailed early this year by injuries.
