Tigers announce expanded spring broadcast schedule

By Adam Berry / MLB.com | 2/6/2013 4:45 P.M. ET

On Wednesday, the Tigers announced their Spring Training radio and TV broadcast schedule, an expanded slate that features 35 games on WXYT, four on FOX Sports Detroit and one nationally televised game on ESPN.

Only one of Detroit's scheduled Spring Training games won't be on the radio, the road portion of a March 2 split-squad game against the Yankees. The other 35 games will air on 97.1 FM The Ticket, WXYT 1270 AM and Tigers Radio Network affiliates. The club said the increase in radio broadcasts comes "in response to the tremendous demand for Tigers baseball."

FOX Sports Detroit, meanwhile, will air four Grapefruit League games in March. The first three will be broadcast from Joker Marchant Stadium in Lakeland, Fla.: March 4 against the Astros, March 19 against the Rays and March 21 against the Astros. FOX Sports Detroit's final spring broadcast will be March 25, when the Tigers face the Marlins at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, Fla.

Detroit will also make one appearance on national TV, as ESPN will show the Tigers-Phillies matchup on March 27 at Joker Marchant Stadium. Additional games to air on MLB Network will be unveiled at a later date.

The Tigers' Grapefruit League schedule begins Feb. 22 against the Braves at Champion Stadium at ESPN Wide World of Sports in Kissimmee, Fla., and their first home game of the spring is Feb. 23 against the Blue Jays. Pitchers and catchers report to TigerTown on Tuesday.
