According to Marc Topkin, there will be four spring training games aired by Sun Sports.
- Mar. 15 (vs Phillies)
- Mar. 18 (vs Red Sox)
- Mar. 25 (vs Marlins)
- Mar. 31 (vs Red Sox)
We have argued this before, but why are so few spring games aired? The obvious answer is that the ratings don’t justify the production cost.
But on games without the full crew, would it kill MLB.com to send one person to each game with a nice webcam and just point it at the field from the pressbox? Geez. We want the games. Give them to us!
