According to Corey Brock, one of the most important questions going in to Spring Training has been answered.
Can we see the Padres play during Spring Training?!?!?
- March 6th: Padres take on the Texas Rangers in Peoria at 12:05pm.
- March 9th: Padres face the Arizona Diamondbacks in Scottsdale at 1:10pm.
- March 18th: Padres face the Seattle Mariners in Peoria as the away team at 7:05pm.
- March 20th: Padres face the San Francisco Giants in Peoria at 7:05pm.
- March 21st: Padres face the Seattle Mariners in Peoria as the away team at 7:05pm.
- March 28th: Padres face the Cleveland Indians at USD's Fowler Field at 6:10pm.
- March 29th: Padres face the Cleveland Indians at USD's Fowler Field at 1:10pm.
The MLB Network will carry 10 Padres games during Spring Training. Mostly they will be delayed games including repeats of 4 games that will be shown on Fox Sports San Diego. MLB Network will have 1 live game that isn't scheduled to be shown on FSSD.
The 10 games include:
- March 3: Split squad game from March 2nd between the Padres and the Los Angeles Dodgers game at midnight/ 3:00am Eastern time.
- March 6th: Padres vs. Texas Rangers at 2pm/5pm for those of you that miss the game on FSSD
- March 7th/8th: Padres vs. Milwaukee Brewers at 10pm on March 7th for San Diego/ 1:00am on March 8th for East Coast Padres Fans
- March 12th: Padres versus the Indians LIVE at 1pm/4pm
- March 15th: Padres versus the Angels from the day before at 7am/10am
- March 19th: Padres versus the Mariners at 1:00am/4am for those of you that miss the game on March 18th shown on FSSD.
- March 20th: Padres play the Giants LIVE at 7pm/10pm
- March 23rd/24th: Padres play the Texas Rangers at 9pm on March 23rd/midnight for East Coast Padres Fans
- March 29th: MLB Network will show the Padres/Indians game from the night before at 7am/10am for those that missed it on FSSD. They will then show the 1pm/4pm game LIVE.
I don't know how many Padres games are typically shown over the 2 networks, but I'd say it's a fair amount of Padres baseball between the two. Interesting to see that both FSSD and the MLB Network will show the games being played at Fowler Field.
Altogether, the Padres will be on TV for 17 games, but only 13 of those are exclusive to one of the two networks. The time to enjoy Padres baseball is on its way in a hurry.
So, those might be the dates for the FSSD. (They probably are.) But, if some are added/subtracted, I'll update the article. Or not.
No shame in watching FSSD when you thought there was going to be a Padres game and there wasn't because I led you to believe there would be one. You should be watching FSSD all the time anyways. They gave it to Time Warner people for that very reason.
You wanted it. Now you got it. So, watch it.
