The St. Louis Cardinals announced today that for the first time in history fans will be able to catch each of the club's 2016 spring training games on either FOX Sports Midwest, KMOX/Cardinals Radio Network (CRN) or streaming online at cardinals.com.
FOX Sports Midwest will again televise 15 games in 2016 - one of the largest spring telecast schedules in MLB, with most games being replayed in prime time. The television home of the Cardinals kicks off its live game coverage on Saturday, March 5, when the Cardinals take on the Miami Marlins. FOX Sports Midwest will also produce the Cardinals Spring Training Report, 30-minute shows that will air February 17 and 24 as part of the network's Wednesday night Cardinals offseason programming series.
The team's flagship station KMOX (AM 1120) and the Cardinals Radio Network will broadcast 18 games with Mike Shannon, John Rooney, Mike Claiborne and Ricky Horton in the broadcast booth. This year will mark Mike Shannon's 45th season and John Rooney's 11th year in the booth. For the first time, ten additional games will be streamed on cardinals.com and MLB's mobile phone app, At Bat, featuring Mike Claiborne, Tom Ackerman, Chris Hrabe and Kyle McClellan. In total, all 28 spring training games will be broadcast or streamed this year.
The streaming schedule begins on Wednesday, March 2, with the Cardinals vs. Florida Atlantic University at Roger Dean Stadium. The radio schedule begins on Thursday, March 3, when the Cardinals kick off Grapefruit League play vs. Miami at Roger Dean Stadium, the first of five broadcast games against the Marlins. Throughout spring training, every Saturday and Sunday broadcast will feature the Cardinals Pre-Game Show. The show will air 20 minutes prior to first pitch and features Mike Shannon or John Rooney interviewing Cardinals players, coaches and other baseball personalities. The 142 Cardinals Radio Network affiliates will carry most Saturday and Sunday games, as well as select weekday games. Fans are encouraged to check their local listings for details.
