Thank God. Spring Training is nearly here, and you’ll all be able to see 12 games on the tube. Here is the press release straight from the Philles:
Fans will be able to access 26 of the 32 Phillies spring training games via TV, radio and/or internet. The 2010 schedule features 9 televised games at Bright House Field in Clearwater, two broadcasts from the road in Florida and one at Citizens Bank Park. Phillies spring training will also air on 1210 WPHT for 14 games and phillies.com will stream six games live.
Comcast SportsNet will carry three games including the New York Yankees match-up on March 4.
The Phillies will air on myPHL17 three times including the final spring training game against the Pittsburgh Pirates on April 3 as part of the On-Deck Series held at Citizens Bank Park.
The Comcast Network will broadcast four games against American League teams in Clearwater including a St. Patrick’s Day telecast against the Yankees. ESPN has picked up a game at home against the New York Yankees on March 22 as well as on the road opposite the Atlanta Braves on March 24.
This means the season is fast approaching, and although Spring Training games are often tough to watch all the way through, it is a breath of fresh air knowing that actual games are around the corner. Some of the Phillies Nation crew (including myself) will be at the St. Patty’s Day game against the Yankees, and we hope to see you there for a major tailgate before the game.
Spring Training: 22 Days away.
