The Associated Press is changing providers for many of our AP Sports Agate files starting Sunday, May 1.

Samples for MLB Box Scores are being posted at and are scheduled to go into production Thursday.

Because of this work, AP’s sports agate lineup will be temporarily scaled back effective Monday, May 2. Work will continue to restore as many of the active fixtures as soon as possible but some may not be available for days or possibly weeks, in the case of the deeper-dive agate files.

The following items will continue without interruption after May 1:
