Soon, you'll be able to hear and watch Cubs baseball on radio, TV or online -- spring must be getting closer, despite the fact that it's maybe 20 degrees in Chicago and there was more snow (although not too much) that fell last night and this morning.
The good news -- almost every spring training game will be available either on WGN radio or at cubs.com. The only games getting no coverage are split-squad games vs. the Reds on March 6 and the Athletics on March 15 (and the intrasquad charity game on March 30). You'll have to register for a cubs.com account to hear the online games, but they'll be available for free. Cubs TV play-by-play announcer Len Kasper will join Mick Gillispie, radio broadcaster for Chicago’s Double-A Tennessee affiliate, for most of the cubs.com internet radio broadcasts.
The Cubs will be on TV on the following eight dates (with channel information):
Sunday 3/6 vs. Dodgers: WGN-TV
Saturday 3/12 vs. Reds (Las Vegas): WGN-TV
Saturday 3/19 vs. Padres: WGN-TV
Sunday 3/20 vs. Giants: CSN Chicago
Thursday 3/24 vs. White Sox: CSN Chicago and ESPN2
Friday 3/25 vs. Mariners: WGN-TV
Saturday 3/26 vs. Rangers: ESPN2
Sunday 3/27 vs. Rockies: WGN-TV
