Spring Training broadcast schedule is out

Tigers fans won’t have to wait long to get a glimpse of their retinkered squad. The Spring Training broadcast schedule, announced Weddnesday, includes six telecasts on Fox Sports Detroit and 20 local radio broadcasts. Several of those broadcasts fall early in the Grapefruit League slate, a slight change from past trends that have leaned toward late in the spring when rosters are closer to Opening Day expectations.

Six of the Tigers’ first seven Grapefruit League games will be on the air in Detroit, including the opener against the Pirates on March 1 in Lakeland on 97.1 FM at 1:05 pm ET. The Tigers’ March 2 split-squad game against the Yankees in Tampa, also a 1:05 start, will be on AM 1270 as well as FSD, picking up the feed from the YES Network. The other split-squad game against the Pirates in Bradenton is the only game that week that won’t be aired in some form.

Fox Sports Detroit resumes its slate March 8 against the Rays at Joker Marchant Stadium, which is also one of three consecutive games on AM 1270. The next week, FSD picks up three games in four days — March 15 against the Braves, then a home-and-home series March 17-18 against the Cardinals.

The FSD slate closes March 31 with a 1:05 game against the Yankees in Lakeland.

A few other games are likely to be picked up by MLB Network and ESPN, which have yet to announce their Spring Training slates. MLB Network can pick up broadcasts from other markets. Several, too, are likely to end up on MLB.TV, while MLB Gameday Audio is expected to carry Tigers radio broadcasts once again.
