The Pittsburgh Pirates announced their full Spring Training broadcast schedule on Friday. On the television side, it adds just two games to the MLB Network schedule released earlier this week. The AT&T SportsNet schedule has 12 televised games, while all 33 games will be broadcast either on the radio, TV or Pirates.com as a webcast. Click on the picture below to check out the entire broadcast schedule.
The two new games are March 10th against Atlanta and March 18th against Boston, although if you’re in the Pittsburgh area, then the other ten home games on MLB Network will be blacked out in your area. So the MLB Network schedule only adds six games (all road games) for the Pittsburgh area. Altogether, 18 games will be shown either on AT&T SportsNet or MLB Network.
The first Spring Training game is next Friday and it will be radio only. No games will be televised until March 4th on MLB Network, but then you get 18 games over the final 24 days.
