As the season comes to a close, baseball takes over the airwaves on Friday night. Ryder Cup action is also on tap Friday morning.

Here is Friday's sports T.V. schedule, customized for the Florida sports fan.

With the baseball season entering its final week, the Tampa Bay Rays and Miami Marlins are in action on Friday against teams in the thick of the postseason chase. As the season comes to a close, the new Wild Card spot in each league has opened up a bevy of possibilities, all of which will be in play in the two Friday night showdowns. Plus, the Ryder Cup gets underway from Illinois.
