Cubs fans catch plenty of spring action

Most games will be available via Internet, TV, radio

CHICAGO -- For the first time, nearly every Cubs' Spring Training game will be available via television, radio or Internet radio broadcast.

The 2011 spring schedule features eight games televised by Cubs broadcast partners (six by WGN and two by Comcast SportsNet), 11 on the WGN Cubs radio network, and 19 via Internet radio broadcast on cubs.com. Fans will be able to access the Cubs webcasts on cubs.com and MLB.com for free by registering for a log-in account with the website.

In total, 32 of the 34 games (not including an intrasquad game) are scheduled to be available via one or more broadcast mediums.

Cubs TV play-by-play announcer Len Kasper will join Mick Gillispie, radio broadcaster for Chicago's Double-A Tennessee affiliate, for most of the Cubs.com radio broadcasts. Gillispie is entering his fifth season as the voice of the Smokies. Last year, he was named the Southern League Broadcaster of the Year.

The first exclusive cubs.com broadcast will be March 1 from Scottsdale, Ariz., when the Cubs play the Giants.

WGN Radio will broadcast the first two games of the spring -- Feb. 27 vs. the Athletics and Feb. 28 vs. the Brewers. Pat Hughes, who enters his 16th season with the Cubs, will handle the play-by-play. The Cubs and WGN Radio have yet to announce his new partner, who takes over for the late Ron Santo.

The first televised spring game will be March 6 when the Cubs host the Dodgers on WGN. Comcast SportsNet's first game will be March 20 against the Giants from HoHoKam Stadium in Mesa, Ariz. All games begin at 1:05 p.m. MT unless otherwise noted.
