Cardinals television update – 02/03/09


Note: See updated schedule information here in my February 22 post.

I didn’t expect to have another of these reports so soon, but the remainder of the St. Louis Cardinals spring and regular season television broadcasts are now filled in on MLB.com.

This post is an update of my January 8, January 19 and January 31 reports.

The news of the regular season television telecasts on Fox Sports Midwest are not a big deal, as they are as expected – basically the 130 games that were not already announced on ESPN, big FOX or KSDK-5. Still, it is good to see them down in print.

The best new news is that FS Midwest’s spring schedule includes five telecasts, including three that were not already scheduled on the away team’s network. This group includes the Friday, April 3 exhibition against the Triple-A Redbirds in Memphis.

Add the two games on KSDK and that makes seven Cardinals spring games available locally. Including two other games on opponent clubs’ networks makes a total of nine televised games planned so far.


Redbird Roundtable on FS Midwest

Fox Sports Midwest postgame analysts Rick Horton and Jack Clark give their takes on the 2009 season in Redbirds Roundtable, a 30-minute special taped at the recent Cardinals Winter Warm-up.  The show debuts Tuesday, February 3 at 10 p.m. CST on Fox Sports Midwest. Schedule details here.

Replays of Fox Sports Midwest’s Winter Warm-up recap shows are also continuing. Schedule details here.


Radio note:
The KTRS radio schedule below is now confirmed. 20 spring games, all on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday plus the Friday night exhibition in Memphis on April 3.

TV notes: Second SportsNet New York (SNY) Mets game on 3/3 added to the schedule as well as the 3/19 game on Fox Sports Florida. That brings the total to 11 televised games, seven on home and six on away networks including two games simulcast by home and away networks.
