CHICAGO - For the third season in a row, most Chicago Cubs Spring Training games will be available to Cubs fans via television, radio or internet radio broadcast as the club today announced its 2013 Spring Training broadcast schedule.
In total, a Cubs game will be available every game day of the spring schedule via one or more broadcast mediums, and 36 of the 39 games are scheduled to be available to Cubs fans overall. United Airlines, the official airline of the Chicago Cubs, is once again proud to be the presenting sponsor of the internet radio broadcasts on Cubs.com.
Additionally, there are four more Spring Training games on the schedule when compared to the first announcement. The Cubs will play a game against a WBC opponent at HoHoKam Stadium on Friday, March 15. The Cubs will also play the Los Angeles Dodgers in Tucson on Thursday, March 21, a game that will benefit the Christina-Taylor Green Memorial Foundation. The Cubs close out their 2013 spring schedule with a pair of games in Houston March 29-30.
The schedule features six games televised by Cubs broadcast partners (four by WGN and two by Comcast SportsNet), nine on the WGN Cubs radio network and 25 via internet radio broadcast on www.cubs.com. Fans will be able to access the Cubs Webcasts on Cubs.com and MLB.com for free by registering for a log-in account with the website.
WGN Radio will broadcast Chicago's first game of the spring on Saturday, February 23 at the Angels. The first televised spring game, featuring the debut of new commentator Jim Deshaies, will be Saturday, March 16 when the Cubs host Kansas City on WGN. Comcast SportsNet's first game will be Monday, March 25 vs. San Francisco.
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 presented by United Airlines. The first cubs.com game with Len and Mick will take place on Sunday, February 24 vs. San Francisco in Mesa.
