Spring Training on the air

If you can't make it out to Jupiter for Spring Training, you can always listen and in a couple of cases watch.

On Monday, the team announced that 15 of Florida's Spring Training games will be broadcast on the team's flagship station, 790 The Ticket and the Florida Marlins Radio Network. Additionally, two spring games will be televised on FOX Sports Florida.

Once again, the radio team will feature Dave Van Horne and Glenn Geffner. They will handle games on 790 The Ticket. The television team will be Rich Waltz and Tommy Hutton.

The televised games will be on Saturday, March 14, when the Marlins face the Twins in Fort Myers, Fla., at 1:05 p.m. ET, and on Monday, March 23, against the Astros at Kissimmee, Fla., also at 1:05 p.m.

The radio broadcasts will begin on Friday, Feb. 27, when the Marlins are facing the Orioles at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter. Other games on the radio will be: March 3 (Dominican Republic), March 6 (at Red Sox), March 7 (Orioles), March 8 (at Cardinals), March 11 (Cardinals), March 15 (Mets), March 19 (Phillies), March 21 (Red Sox), March 22 (at Tigers), March 24 (Twins), March 28 (at Mets), March 29 (Nationals), April 1 (at Orioles) and April 4 (Blue Jays).

The announcers have to knock off the rust, just like the players.  It is always nice to hear and maybe see baseball again.  It does warm the heart.
