MASN, the Washington Nationals’ TV home, announced their Spring Training broadcast schedule last week. This morning, the Nats released their entire 2017 Spring Training broadcast schedule, including the radio broadcasts of their Grapefruit League games, which will finally bring Charlie Slowes and Dave Jageler back into our lives.
Between MASN and 106.7 the FAN in D.C., the Nationals will have 16 Grapefruit League games broadcast:
“The Nationals' spring schedule features seven games televised by MASN and a combined 12 games airing on 106.7 The Fan and partner station CBS Sports Radio WJFK 1580 AM. In addition, the Naval Academy Classic against the Boston Red Sox will be televised nationally on ESPN.”
It all starts with the Nationals and Astros’ February 28th matchup at the Nats’ shared Spring Training facility in West Palm Beach, FL in a 1:05 PM game that will be live on MASN and 1580 AM.
We’re actually excited about the fact that we’ll have World Baseball Classic matchups mixed in next month as well to keep us going until the real games actually start with Washington’s 2017 season opener on April 3rd in the nation’s capital, when the Miami Marlins come to D.C. for the start of a three-game set.
But that’s still a month and a half away now. It’s time to get excited about Grapefruit League action coming our way. Here’s the when/where on the Nationals’ 2017 TV and radio broadcasts.
Note: It’s probably important to mention that these are just the games the Nationals themselves are broadcasting. There should be other opportunities to watch/listen via the opposing teams’ broadcasts.
