Cubs Release Spring Training Broadcast Schedule
I’m not going to pretend you clicked on this to read my commentary on the subject matter since, well, it’s just a broadcast schedule. As such, it makes more sense to block-quote the content from cubs.com, which you’ll find below. Before we get to that, there are a couple things I didn’t include that I wanted to highlight.
Of note among the excluded tidbits: Fans will have access to 34 of the 36 total games via one medium or another. Also, Tennessee Smokies announcer Mick Gillispie will be paired with Len Kasper for most of the cubs.com broadcasts. I’ve never met Gillispie personally, though he’s great at what he does and seems like a really good dude to boot.
He did, however, receive the only boos from the Cubs Convention crowd when he let fly with a hearty “Roll Tide!” prior to the “Down on the Farm” panel. I’ll cut him some slack since he’s a Bama grad and handles pre- and postgame duties for Crimson Tide football games, as well as the SEC Network.
Anyway, back to the info you came here for…
The schedule features six games televised by Cubs broadcast partners (four by WGN-TV and two by NBC Sports Chicago), 10 on the 670 The Score Cubs Radio Network and 24 via internet radio broadcast on www.cubs.com. Fans will be able to access the Cubs Webcasts on Cubs.com and MLB.com for free by registering for a log-in account with the website.
Pat Hughes and Ron Coomer return as the radio voices of the Chicago Cubs. WGN-TV will televise its first game when the Cubs host the Chicago White Sox on February 27. Len Kasper and Jim Deshaies return to call all Cubs TV games.
All games start at 1:05 p.m. Arizona time unless otherwise noted. Chicago is one hour ahead of Arizona through Saturday, March 10 before moving to two hours ahead on Sunday, March 11.
