Padres Spring Training is getting closer and closer, with only 14 days left until pitchers and catchers report, and 25 days until the first Spring Training game. Now we have even more reason to get excited because today the Padres announced their full Spring Training broadcast schedule, which features 32 games to be televised and/or carried on radio or audio webcast.
All in all, Fox Sports San Diego will air 13 live games as well as one tape-delayed game. Don Orsillo will call all 14 of these games from Peoria Sports Complex, with Mark Grant and Mark Sweeney splitting time as his broadcast partner.
The first game to be televised will be the Padres third Spring Training game, a matchup against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on Monday, February 27th at 12 pm PT. Four of the 14 games will also be simulcast on Fox Sports West. Here's the full telecast schedule from FSSD:
You may want to make note of the March 7th live telecast of the contest between the Padres and the Mexican national team. As announced previously, this exhibition game will be a precursor to the World Baseball Classic, which takes place in March and will be played in part at Petco Park in San Diego.
Aside from the television broadcasts, 23 games will be available on the radio or via audio webcast on MLB.com. Nine games will air on the Padres' new radio home for 2017, FM 94.9. Fourteen will air on 94.9's sister station, KSON 97.3. And of those 23 radio broadcasts, 14 will also be simulcast on the web at MLB.com. Ted Leitner and Jesse Agler will be in the booth for these games.
