The Indians’ regular season and Spring Training broadcast schedules have been released, and they should offer you plenty of opportunities to see Mitch Talbot in action.
During Cactus League play, SportsTime Ohio will telecast six games, the Indians Radio Network (including flagship station WTAM 1100 here in Cleveland) will carry 20 games and Indians.com will broadcast 10 games to subscribers.
During the regular season, a total of 151 of the 162 games will be televised on SportsTime Ohio, WKYC Channel 3, ESPN and FOX.
STO will carry 148 games (all of which will be available in HD). WKYC will carry 20 of the STO games, FOX will carry the April 17 home game against the White Sox, and ESPN will carry the June 7 home game against the Red Sox and the July 26 home game against the Yankees.
The full schedule, which now includes start times and broadcast plans, can be found at this link.
The Tribe’s TV and radio broadcast teams remain the same, with Rick Manning, Matt Underwood and Al Pawlowski on STO and Tom Hamilton, Mike Hegan and Jim Rosenhaus on the Radio Network. The added wrinkle this year is that Rosenhaus, in addition to his pregame show host duties, will also be doing play-by-play for an inning each game.
