Cardinals Spring Radio/TV Update

The first radio game of the spring is on Saturday, or Friday, or even Thursday, depending on how you listen and subscribe.

Audio
KTRS and certain Cardinals radio affiliates will broadcast 16 March tilts, starting this Saturday, March 4. However, if you live in New York or plan to spend the $14.95 for the MLB Gameday Audio season package or subscribe to XM Satellite radio, you can get a preview. This Friday's game will be available via the Mets' flagship station, WFAN, and picked up by the other outlets, too.

In fact, XM is even doing it one day better. Their Cardinals schedule shows them covering Thursday's opening spring game against the Mets, although it apparently isn't either a KFNS or WFAN feed. Here's the link.

In the schedule below, you'll see XM coverage through March 12 only, as they have not yet announced their entire spring roster of games.

Video
On the television side, as previously announced, the Cardinals can be seen six times on the tube this March – three games on ESPN, two on Fox Sports Midwest and one on KPLR WB11.

In addition, those Cardinals fans in markets of spring opponents in New York and Baltimore or who have access to their feeds via satellite or MLB.tv can pick up as many as four additional contests during the final week of spring training.

HD treat
While neither WB11 nor FSNM have announced the approximately 30 specific regular season games they promise will be covered via high definition this year, we do have one confirmed HD game so far. The Cubs game on April 9 will be televised by ESPN in high definition. I can't wait!
