MLB Network announced their first week of spring training games this morning. Among their schedule that’s packed full of baseball are two Cincinnati Reds baseball games. The first game will be on Tuesday March 2nd at 8pm when the Los Angeles Angels visit Goodyear. The next game will begin 24 hours later when the Reds make the return trip to take on the Dodgers on March 3rd, also at 8pm. Both games are scheduled to be live broadcasts – not all of the scheduled games on MLB Network’s schedule will be live.
The current MLB Network broadcast schedule is only set through March 8th. You can see the full schedule here if you want to check out all 46 of the games they will be showing over the next week-ish.
As of this moment, Fox Sports Ohio (and soon to be known as Bally Sports Ohio) has not released their spring training broadcast schedule. When that happens we will be sure to have an update here at Redleg Nation with that information. We also do not have any updates on which services will be carrying the channel – just that we are aware that it’s not available on several service options currently.
Over at The Athletic, C. Trent Rosecrans wrote about Nick Castellanos and how he still doesn’t know how what it is that he likes about the city of Cincinnati….. because he really hasn’t had the chance to experience it despite signing with the team a year ago. But he is looking forward to finding that out this year. Castellanos also spoke about his 2020 season, how he felt about it, and how much he’s looking forward to a full season in 2021.
The Cincinnati Enquirer has at least some of their people out in Goodyear and on the ground now that games are about to begin and the media is allowed to attend. Photographer Sam Greene is working from a specified platformed area that is very far from where they would normally be able to set up, much less be able to roam around to various spots – but he’s making the best of what he’s got access to and there’s a photo gallery that you can check out from Friday’s workouts.
We’ll wrap up this quick afternoon update with some video of Eugenio Suárez taking a few swings in Goodyear.
