One step closer … and, once spring training does arrive, we’ll have more chances than ever to actually see and hear the Cardinals in action. Nearly all of their games will be on FOX Sports Midwest and the Cardinals Radio Network.
FOX Sports Midwest will televise an all-time-high 15 spring training games in 2014, one of the largest spring broadcast schedules in MLB. FOX Sports Midwest’s live spring training coverage has jumped from five games in 2012 to 10 in 2013 and 15 in 2014. The television home of the Cardinals kicks off its live game coverage on Friday, Feb. 28, when the Cardinals open Grapefruit League play vs. Miami at Roger Dean Stadium. That will be the first of six games against the Marlins.
The television schedule also features visits by the Red Sox, Mets, Twins, Tigers, Braves and Nationals. In addition, ESPN will broadcast the game at Boston on Monday, March 17. FOX Sports Midwest will replay each spring training telecast that night.
As in years past, veteran broadcasters Mike Shannon and John Rooney will broadcast 18 games on the team’s flagship station KMOX (AM 1120) and the Cardinals Radio Network, including the Cardinals’ exhibition game against the Memphis Redbirds at AutoZone Park in Memphis on Friday, March 28.
