I looked on the official white sox site, but could not find any info in regards to the televising of spring training games. IIRC, at least a couple of games were on WGN last year. Does anyone have any info on what games will be televised? I can only pick up WGN until opening day. :(

I know this may be a little early, but I HATE this time of year. For pete's sake, discussion about NASCAR *yuck* and the NBA all-star game *double yuck* was on the airwaves...

"Televising games costs too much."

"We have to protect our season reservation holders."

:ozzie:
"If we made it to Game 7 of the World Series, yeah we could probably televise it but otherwise..."

USUALLY they televise 2 Cub games, and I remember being at the group leader party in the bullpen bar a few times with a game on. I think that's March 13 this year if they have it. Also they televise a game right about St. Patrick's Day because I always see the green hats. Who knows anymore though.

ESPN is going to start televising ST games this year. I think their first one is March 3rd (Mets and Dodgers). I don't know their schedule though; if I find it, I'll edit it in.

EDIT: All Espn.com lists as a televised Sox game is:
Sat. 13 at Chicago Cubs 3:05 PM WGN Mesa
Not sure if they would list if games are one FSN/Comcast, or only the national networks.
Their ST schedule that shows the games they televise is at http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/schedules

I remember two game televised last season. One was on a Friday against Milwaukee and the other was the next day against the Cubs..... or vice versa.

Thanks for the link. That's pretty cool that they're telecasting some ST games this year but I probably won't be home to watch any of them. Oh well. I can listen to most of the sox games in school because they start at 2:05
