Spring Training has been underway for just over a week now, but tomorrow the real action starts as the first game of Spring takes place in Arizona. All but one Spring Training game this year will be available via television, radio, or MLB.com audio broadcast.
As always, the San Diego Padres will kick off their preseason slate with a charity game against the Seattle Mariners, with whom they share a Spring Training complex in Peoria. The game will air live on Fox Sports San Diego at 12:10 pm PT. All in all, FSSD will broadcast 13 Spring Training games, including two Fox Sports West simulcasts and one game that will be tape-delayed. This is one fewer telecast than last year. Don Orsillo will do play-by-play for all Spring telecasts while Mark Grant and Mark Sweeney split color duties and Bob Scanlan reports from the sideline.
Meanwhile a team of Ted Leitner, Jesse Agler, and Tony Gwynn Jr. will call all radio/audio broadcasts in Arizona. After a year of being on FM 94.9, Padres radio broadcasts will move to sister station 97.3 this season, with the first radio broadcast taking place on March 3rd as the Padres hit the road to face the Athletics. Additionally, starting this Saturday, 11 audio webcasts will be made available on MLB.com for games not on TV or radio.
