DODGERS ANNOUNCE 2010 SPRING TRAINING BROADCAST SCHEDULE
--PRIME TICKET and KCAL to televise more Spring Training games than ever before--
LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Dodgers today announced their 2010 Spring Training broadcast schedule. Fourteen of the Dodgers’ thirty-two spring games will be televised, which is more than the Dodgers and their broadcast partners have ever made available to fans.
PRIME TICKET will carry 11 games live, KCAL 9 will broadcast three and the remainder will air on KABC 790, KHJ La Ranchera 930 and the Dodger Radio Network.
The first telecast of 2010 will air on PRIME TICKET when the Dodgers take on the White Sox at Camelback Ranch – Glendale for their first Spring Training home game. The March 17 St. Patrick’s Day game and the March 20 7:05 p.m. game against San Diego will also air on PRIME TICKET and the 11 televised games are more than the network has ever broadcast for fans. In an effort to provide more Spring Training games to fans than ever before, PRIME TICKET’s “Camelback Vision” telecasts will air with minimized production, as is appropriate for the atmosphere of Spring Training.
Game announcers for the 11 games on PRIME TICKET will be shared across multiple Dodgers broadcast teams including Play-by-play Announcer Eric Collins alongside Analyst Steve Lyons and Play-by-Play Announcer Charley Steiner alongside Analyst Rick Monday.
KCAL 9 will televise the Dodgers’ March 21 contest against the Cleveland Indians and the March 27 game against Seattle. The network will also broadcast the final game of Spring Training when the Dodgers host the Angels at Dodger Stadium on April 3. Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully will be behind the microphone for all three games.
