Spring radio schedule

Mar 4, 2011, 7:54 PM EDT

I know a lot of you have been asking about this one. At long last, we have an official schedule of spring training games on the radio.

WJFK (106.7 FM) is the new flagship station, as you’ve known for several weeks now. Most of the games this spring will be broadcast there, though a couple of games have conflicts and will be bumped to their sister station WHFS (1580 AM).

Here’s the full spring radio schedule…

Sun, March 6 vs. Braves, 1:05 p.m. on 106.7 FM
Mon, March 7 vs. Astros, 1:05 p.m. on 1580 AM
Thu, March 17 at Braves, 6:05 p.m. on 106.7 FM
Fri, March 18 vs. Cardinals, 1:05 p.m. on 1580 AM
Sat, March 19 at Mets, 1:10 p.m. on 106.7 FM
Sun, March 20 vs. Tigers, 1:05 p.m. on 1580 AM
Thu, March 24 at Tigers, 6:05 p.m. on 106.7 FM
Fri, March 25 vs. Cardinals, 6:05 p.m. on 106.7 FM
Sat, March 26 at Astros, 1:05 p.m. on 106.7 FM
Sun, March 27 vs. Marlins, 1:05 p.m. on 106.7 FM

(Regular-season games will be simulcast on WFED (1500 AM) as an affiliate station, though I’m not sure if that also applies during the spring. I’ll let you know when I find out. UPDATE: Sunday and Monday’s games will not be on 1500 AM because the affiliate contract hasn’t been officially signed yet. The two sides hope things are finally wrapped up in time for the March 17 broadcast.)

    Looks like the spring games are on WFED 1500 AM too; per the Nats site: http://washington.nationals.mlb.com/schedule/broadcast/index.jsp?c_id=was

    Marrero 2 for 2 today. Now is 4 for 4 with a double and ribbie. I can see why Laroche is gonna play in front of him, but why are these 2 journeyman guys in camp getting his PT. Ohhh…..wait….didn't Bowden draft Chris? Now it gets clearer

    I talked with the program director at WJFK when the schedule came out, and he indicated the games would be simulcast on 1500 AM WFED.

    Do you really think that Rizzo or Riggleman make decisions about talent basing it on Bowden's history with this team? What a joke. They have played 5 games and he has played well which is great. According to people in FLA, he has lost some weight, and improved his fielding which are both positives. Marrero has moved up each year and will jump again to AAA. He is now on the 40 man roster and its only a matter of time, if he keeps improving that he will be here. He is still young and his getting playing time has nothing to do with Bowden. Now I have to admit, I don't understand why they signed Aubrey and Barker but they must need depth below Syracuse or they were covering themselves in case LaRoche got hurt.

    Any chance it is Storen who ends up in SYR? His rise to MLB was fast and direct, maybe too fast and direct

    Mark:IE8 user. The banner never was a link to NI home page. So I cleared cookies and temp files. And it worked. Once. Does not work today. Ah well.

    WOOO HOOOO! The dulcet tones of Charlie Slowes. Can summer be far?

    As a heads up, Federal Baseball user wittcap79 posted 7:30 of Bryce Harper at bats from 2/28, 3/1, and 3/2 here.

  10. Slidell - Mar 5, 2011 at 3:08 PM

    Well, Storen has at least one excuse. He spent the off-season absorbed in studies at Stanford. He may just need a bit of time to "get into his groove".

    Banner seems to work quite nicely in Chrome 9.0 …

    and even better in RockMelt 0.9

    You mean I will actually be able to hear the NATS play after dark way out in Manassas this year? That is a huge improvement over WFED that cuts it's power back when the sun goes down and the signal only goes as far as Fairfax!
