For the second consecutive week, MLB is bringing back its broadcast schedule to highlight the spring training action.
Last year, the network broadcast two games at the end of April, while last year it had three games in the last two weeks.
In fact, last season, MLB also had three spring training games in two weeks, while this year it will have three games during the final week of the season.
Here are some other things to know about spring training: 1.
The spring training schedule is set by MLB’s new television partner, ESPN, and not by the league.
MLB is looking to get back into a regular rotation in April.
“The spring is the most important time of the year, so it makes sense for us to put a good baseball show on the air,” ESPN President of Programming Mike Reiss said in a statement.
“We are working with MLB to figure out what format will work best for our broadcast partners, the fans, and MLB.
The game schedule is now set.”
The league has not yet released a schedule.
MLB will not announce its official spring schedule until the spring of 2019, which would be the final spring of the regular season.
The first game is at the Polo Grounds in Arlington, Texas.
There will be a special announcement for fans at noon ET on Sunday.
“This is a unique event for us and our fans, with the most intimate ballpark in baseball, a special moment in spring training,” Reiss added.
“So the first game of spring training is the best-kept secret in baseball.”
There are three MLB spring training series: the New York Mets, Atlanta Braves, and San Francisco Giants.
The New Jersey Devils, Washington Nationals and Boston Red Bulls have the spring-training series.
Spring training is only the second week of March.
The final two weeks of the baseball season can be anywhere from four weeks to six weeks, depending on when the baseball games are held.
The longest spring training stretches of a calendar year usually run from May to August.
The average length of a spring training stretch is five months.
In April, the average length is 11 months.
There is only one home spring training game per team, which means the Yankees, Nationals and Red Sox will all have at least one game at home.
The Yankees will host their first game at Yankee Stadium on March 28 against the Washington Senators.
The Red Sox host their next home game on April 2 against the Atlanta Braves.
The Nationals play their first of the spring in Boston on April 6.
The Giants host their final spring game in New York on April 10.
The Braves play their last spring game at Busch Stadium in Atlanta on April 14.
Spring games are broadcast on a Saturday and Sunday, not a Wednesday and Thursday.
The games are scheduled for a 3:30 p.t. kickoff time.
“Our fans love the idea of the first three games at home,” Reis said.
“But when you look at the schedule, you see the difference between those games.
The last two games are Thursday and Saturday, but it doesn’t matter if you’re a fan of one or two home games, you have to be at a baseball game.”
The schedule will be released at the beginning of April.
Spring practices begin April 4 in Grapevine, Texas, and end April 12 in San Diego.
The home spring games will include a three-day exhibition game.
The Orioles will play a one-day game against the Texas Rangers at Camden Yards, while the Rangers play a two-day series against the New England Patriots at Fenway Park.
Spring players will be allowed to participate in one or more of the six games that begin the season on April 1.
Spring pitchers will begin April 8 in Los Angeles and will play three games before the season begins.
The Dodgers will play one game on March 29 against the
