How to catch both Cardinals Friday split squad games

With two St. Louis Cardinals games being played simultaneously on Friday, here is how to ensure you can watch both.

St. Louis Cardinals fans have a unique dilemma on Friday. The club has a split squad day with two simultaneous games being played – one at home and one away. Do you watch Adam Wainwright and Lance Lynn pitch against Miami or Carlos Martinez and Oscar Taveras take on the Mets?

With two full squads that include at least 10 players brought over from minor league camp, viewers may get to see some of the organization’s rising young prospects for the first time. That could put some pressure on the television crews as the numbers get into the 90s with no names attached. Who can forget Taveras’ 2012 debut as “minor league guy?”

Even for those with DVRs, it could be a challenge to see both contests, so here is the complete schedule of live and rebroadcast plans for Friday’s games.
