The Cubs unveiled their Spring Training broadcast schedule Monday afternoon, and 33 of 36 games will be available for Cubs fans via some medium. Ten games will be televised by Cubs broadcast partners WGN and Comcast, four more than last season. Also, eight games can be heard via WGN Cubs radio, and 23 will be broadcast on cubs.com.
WGN TV will broadcast Chicago’s first game from its new Spring Training home, Cubs Park, on Thursday, Feb. 27, against Arizona (tickets are available at cubs.com/mesa). WGN Radio will have its first broadcast the next day versus the Angels, with new commentator Ron Coomer making his debut. Comcast SportsNet’s first game will be Sunday, March 16, against Cleveland.
Cubs TV play-by-play announcer Len Kasper will again join Mick Gillispie, radio broadcaster for Chicago’s Double-A Tennessee affiliate, for most of the cubs.com internet radio broadcasts.
All games start at 1:05 Arizona time unless otherwise noted. Chicago is one hour ahead of Arizona through Saturday, March 8. before moving to two hours ahead on Sunday, March 9.
