White Sox release spring training broadcast schedule

Adam Dunn scratches his head at the lack of specifics.

The spring training schedule once again presents multiple opportunities to see or hear the White Sox in preseason action. The schedule includes six games on television (five on Comcast SportsNet and one on WGN), nine games on WSCR and twelve games on (all of those webcasts are free).

Of course, the press release does not actually tell you exactly which games will be on what. For example, this is how they describe the TV coverage:

The first televised game will be March 9 against the Cubs on WGN-9 at Camelback Ranch at 2:05 p.m. CST. Comcast SportsNet will carry five games, starting with a March 23 game against Arizona at Camelback Ranch in Glendale. CSN will wrap up its spring TV schedule April 3 against Houston at Minute Maid Park at 7 p.m.

Thanks for that, I guess. [Edit 7:30pm: The White Sox put up the other dates. The six games are 3/9 v Cubs; 3/23 v Diamondbacks (night game); 3/25 v Giants; 3/29 v Dodgers; 4/1 v Reds; and 4/3 v Astros (night game).]

The real fun will be this:

WSCR broadcasts the first of its nine games on Monday, March 5 at 2:05 p.m. CST when the White Sox open spring training against the Los Angeles Dodgers in Glendale. WSCR again will feature the on-air tandem of Ed Farmer and Darrin Jackson. Four of the nine game broadcasts (March 10, 17, 24 and 25) feature an "interactive" format, allowing listeners to interact with Farmer and Jackson, as well as pre and post-game host Chris Rongey during the broadcast.

The webcasts begin on March 5 against the Dodgers. The Mystery Man, Bill Melton, will be doing the color commentary. No word on his sidekick.
