If you're like me and you can't wait until that very first hint of spring, then you're in luck as you won't have to wait longer than the very first Braves game of Spring Training. Between the MLB Network, Fox Sports South, and ESPN, there will be tons of Braves games on TV this spring. Here is a rundown:
Tuesday, March 2nd @ 1pm - Braves vs. Mets on MLB
Tuesday, March 9th @ 7pm - Phillies vs. Braves on CSS (Comcast?) and MLB
Thursday, March 11th @ 7pm - Braves vs. Yankees on CSS and MLB
Tuesday, March 16th @ 1pm - Marlins vs. Braves on FSS and MLB
Wednesday, March 17th @ 1pm - Braves vs. Marlins on FSS and MLB
Tuesday, March 23rd @ 1pm - Braves vs. Mets on ESPN
Wednesday, March 24th @ 1pm - Phillies vs. Braves on ESPN
Friday, March 26th @ 1pm - Tigers vs. Braves on ESPN
Tuesday, March 30th @ 1pm - Yankees vs. Braves on CSS
Wednesday, March 31st @ 1pm - Astros vs. Braves on CSS and MLB
That's an impressive slate of games -- at least two each week. The last two games back in Atlanta will also be televised on Fox Sports South, the 2nd and 3rd of April.
The only downside to this spring television schedule is that there are no weekend games. I suppose I'll be pushing the limits of my DVR or playing a lot of hookie from work.
