Can’t wait til March 28th for Milwaukee Brewers baseball? Can’t make it to the Fields of Phoenix for Spring Training?
Well you are in luck, earlier today the Milwaukee Brewers announced their spring training 2019 broadcast schedule. This season 14 games will be broadcast on Fox Sports Wisconsin and 19 games will be aired over the radio to the Brewers radio network.
The radio opener for the Brewers is just a couple weeks away when they open Spring Training play against the rival Chicago Cubs. The first game fans will be able to watch will be the Feb. 25th game against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
Eight games will air exclusively on MLB.com, including the March 25th and 26th games in Montreal against the Toronto Blue Jays to close out Spring Training.
A couple of TV games will air with different broadcasters than Brian Anderson and Bill Schroeder. Three games will air on TV with the Fox Sports West crew. And there will be one game with the Fox Sports San Diego crew.
There will also be four games that are on the radio that won’t air on the usual 620 WTMJ, but instead on 94.5 FM ESPN Milwaukee.
This year, all Brewers spring training games will be available for fans in Wisconsin to follow along on either TV, radio, or webcast. There won’t be any games where there’s simply no coverage. That’s just one of the perks of being World Series contenders this season.
If you can make it down to the recently renovated Fields of Phoenix, the Brewers will open their home spring schedule against the San Diego Padres on Feb. 26th.
Yesterday, Brewers staffers (and a few mascots) loaded up the semi truck heading from Milwaukee to Phoenix. In total the team is taking 20,500 baseballs, 1,000 bats, uniforms, helmets, socks and enough double bubble and sunflower seeds to supply them for the entire month and a half of Spring Training.
With pitchers and catchers reporting on Feb. 14th, the cold winter winds are starting to feel just a little warmer knowing that Milwaukee Brewers baseball will be back very soon!
The first full squad workout will be February 19th. Spring is finally here, and this long offseason is finally coming to a close. But there could still be work to be done constructing this roster with dozens of quality free agents remaining on the market.
