2 More Cubs Spring Games On TV -- With A Catch

In addition to the Cubs' 10 scheduled televised games this spring, you can catch two others. Find out how, within.

The Cubs have scheduled 10 spring-training games to televise this year, the most ever. Four of them will be on WGN-TV, six on CSN Chicago.

Today, it was announced that two other Cubs spring games will be available on Chicago television. As the headline states, there's a catch. The catch is: those two games are against the White Sox, and you'll have to listen to the White Sox TV announcers, or hit the mute button, or try to sync up the Cubs audio with the TV pictures.

These games are March 21 at Glendale (3:05 CT, CSN Chicago) and March 27 at Mesa (2:05 CT, WGN-TV). The March 21 game audio will be broadcast on cubs.com with Len Kasper and Mick Gillispie; the March 27 game will be on WGN radio with Pat Hughes and Ron Coomer.

This is in addition to four other Cubs games that are being televised over their opponent's cable channel, which might be available online (I have not heard yet whether spring TV games are going to be online), or you can watch if you live in the local markets: March 2 vs. Brewers (FSN Wisconsin), March 12 vs. Mariners (ROOT Sports Seattle), March 14 vs. Dodgers (SportsNet LA) and March 19 vs. Rockies (ROOT Sports Denver). Some of these games might be available via MLB Network, also; I'll post that information when it becomes available.

That makes 12 Cubs spring games overall on Chicago TV this year, and four others that you'll be able to see highlights, at the very least, after the games end.
