Brian Walton's news and commentary on the St. Louis Cardinals (TM) and their minor league system

Cardinals 2011 spring training schedule update #1

Wait ‘til next year!

Roger Dean Stadium, Jupiter, FL (Brian Walton photo)Such is the annual cry of Chicago Cubs fans, but with their own post-season hopes slipping away, St. Louis Cardinals followers may soon be joining them.

For as long as I have been tracking spring training schedule information, I am quite sure this is the earliest I have seen anything available for the next spring. A partial 2011 schedule of games has been released by the Atlanta Braves, reports springtrainingonline.com.

The tentative Braves schedule includes three games with the Cardinals. St. Louis will visit Champion Stadium at the Disney complex in Orlando on Wednesday-Thursday, March 9-10 and the Braves will come to Jupiter’s Roger Dean Stadium on Friday, March 18.

For those planning Disney World trips, a six-month notice isn’t really all that far into the future.

As every year, I will continue to fill in the table below all winter long. Game schedules will become available first, with broadcast information typically trickling in later.
