The Pittsburgh Pirates announced their Spring Training broadcast schedule on Friday morning. It includes 12 Spring Training games televised live on ROOT Sports. It also includes 16 games broadcast on KDKA and another 12 radio calls will stream live on MLB.com.
MLB Network will release their full Spring Training schedule soon, and that will likely include somewhere between 5-10 more road games. All of the ROOT games are home contests. We will post an update once those extra games have been announced. As of right now, the first televised game will be March 6th, though that could change once MLB Network announces their schedule. The full chart is below (click on chart to view it full page).

John was born in Kearny, NJ, hometown of the 2B for the Pirates 1909 World Championship team, Dots Miller. In fact they have some of the same relatives in common, so it was only natural for him to become a lifelong Pirates fan. Before joining Pirates Prospects in July 2010, John had written numerous articles on the history of baseball while also releasing his own book and co-authoring another on the history of the game. He writes a weekly article on Pirates history for the site, has already interviewed many of the current minor leaguers with many more on the way and follows the foreign minor league teams very closely for the site. John also provides in person game reports of the West Virginia Power and Altoona Curve.
