The San Diego Padres released their television and radio broadcast schedule for spring training. Thirty of the Friars’ Cactus League games will be available to stream or listen to, as per MLB.com.
FOX Sports San Diego will broadcast thirteen games, with Don Orsillio, Mark Grant, and Mark Sweeney in the booth and Bob Scanlan down in the press box on-call for ten of those.
The game versus the Kansas City Royals (should be as exciting as a spring training game can be) on March 6, will be available on FOX Sports Kansas City and two versus the Angels (February 25 and 26) will be available through a simulcast on FOX Sports West.
