1/24 Cubs spring broadcast schedule

Fans who can’t get to Arizona to watch the Cubs’ Spring Training games will be able to keep up either on TV, radio or the internet. The Cubs will televise six Cactus League games (four on WGN TV, two on Comcast SportsNet), broadcast nine on WGN Radio network, and 25 via Internet radio broadcast on Cubs.com. The Cubs webcasts on Cubs.com and MLB.com will be free for fans who register for a log-in account with the website. In total, 36 of the 39 games will be available to Cubs fans.

Two games also have been added to the Cubs’ spring schedule. They will play a World Baseball Classic opponent at HoHoKam Stadium on March 15, plus play the Dodgers in Tucson on March 21 to benefit the Christina-Taylor Green Memorial Foundation. The Cubs close out their 2013 spring schedule against the Astros in Houston, March 29-30.

WGN Radio will broadcast Chicago’s first spring game on Feb. 23 against the Angels. The first televised game will be on WGN TV on March 16 when the Cubs play host to the Royals in Mesa, Ariz. Comcast SportsNet’s first game will be March 25 against the Giants.

Cubs TV play-by-play announcer Len Kasper will join Mick Gillispie, radio broadcaster for Double-A Tennessee for most of the Cubs.com broadcasts, presented by United Airlines. The first Cubs.com game with Kasper and Gillispie will be Feb. 24 against the Giants.

All games start at 1:05 p.m. Arizona time unless otherwise noted.

Whooo I’m gonna be cheering for Baez!!! ;D

Isabel – what happened to Barney? Is he off your fan list now? Did you meet him? Is Baez your new guy? Am I the only Barney fan now? LOL

OMG DONT EVER SAY THAT ABOUT ME AND BARNEY! LOL. No it’s just that Baez is my imaginary husband! haha. I met both of them this weekend and I was starstrucked by Barney! Couldn’t speak at all!!! (BARNEY’S #1 FAN FOR LIFE RIGHT HERE!)

Oh dang! I thought I had a chance with being Barney’s best fan! Were you able to chat with him at all? He sure is a sweetie! I am very glad you got to meet him. So I guess our competition is still on! LOL

Well I did speak a little. He is a sweetie!! No our competition isn’t on anymore, you lost already I won. Haha just kidding, but yes it’s still on!

You two are FUNNY!!!🙂 (Sorry White but my money is still on the Relentless Isabel!)

Joey, Joey – The competition has only just begun – Isabel may be “relentless” but I have “age and tenacity” on my side!!!! Stay tuned for a VERY interesting contest. We have an entire 2013 season ahead of us to determine the winner. Maybe Carrie can decide at the end of the season who wins the title. LOL

OK White, your last reply showed YOUR relentlessness as well!! I stand corrected. Isabel…LOOK OUT, White is coming!!! Game on!

Isabel – Google ComcastSportsNet Awards 2013 to see Barney get another award. He was named Cub of the Year!!!! Go Dar. LOL

NO MAMA! NEVER WILL I PICK BAEZ OVER BARNEY!!! I’m just saying that I will be cheering Baez on because he’s my favorite prospect that we have. But, nope. Sorry White, your gonna have to keep working hard because Barney is kinda mine. LOL. He has been my favorite since I don’t know when!! NEVER WOULD I TRADE BARNEY! Even if..yes Im about to say this…even if he goes to the White Sox’s I will be his number 1 fan! NOT A SOX FAN BUT A BARNEY FAN! Haha! But all my loyalty will be for the Cubs AND Barney! And yes White I saw that “Cubs of the Year”! I was so excited!!! Whooooo!

OH NO – I AM SO BUMMED! I thought I had it all wrapped up and now I have to go back to work
with Isabel! What am I to do now? I am glad you got to see the “Cubs of the Year” awards. I
think Ernie Banks is so cute too.

Sorry White! Your gonna have to work a lot! Yes Joey might see relentlessness in you but you have no idea everything I know! Try me White!🙂 LOL
