Speaking as a person of the Midwestern persuasion, I’m super-psyched to see that more of the spring training games in the far away land of Arizona will be available to me thanks to the magic of satellites and the MLB network. I’ll leave it up to you to decide whether that’s black magic or not.
With players reporting to the Grapefruit and Cactus Leagues this week, MLB Network is announcing its plans to air 83 games as part of its 2011 Spring Training coverage. The game schedule begins on Saturday, February 26, with the Phillies visiting the Yankees live from George M. Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, Fla., at 1 p.m. ET.
That’s the first paragraph of the story, and it actually went on for a couple more sentences after that. Does no one know how to write a proper lead?
You can see the full schedule of games to be televised on MLBNetwork.com. Some I found interesting include:
- Tues., Mar. 1 3:00 p.m. Cincinnati Reds (ss)** L.A. Angels of Anaheim
- Mon., Mar. 7 9:30 p.m. (s) Milwaukee Brewers Cincinnati Reds
- Sat., Mar. 26 11:00 p.m. (s) Cincinnati Reds San Francisco Giants (ss)
- Mon., Mar. 28 4:00 p.m. Cincinnati Reds Chicago White Sox
