Spring Training TV
Remaining Marlins spring training games that can be watched via MLB.TV:
- March 12 @ Mets
- March 15 @ Astros
- March 18 @ Cardinals
- March 22 vs. Cardinals
- March 23 @ Mets
- March 27 @ Cardinals
In addition, “logistics are still being worked out” to broadcast Nationals games later this month on their regional television network, MASN. The Nats and Marlins will meet on March 20 and March 25, so hopefully at least one of those gets selected.
“Fingers crossed” that FOX Sports Florida makes last-minute arrangements to cover spring games, but don’t count on it.
No fancy cameras will be turned on for Monday’s game when the Marlins and Cardinals meet at Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium (1:05 p.m. ET). However, you can listen to the radio call on 940 WINZ. Probable starting pitchers are Elieser Hernandez and Kwang Hyun Kim.
