Good to see the Twins playing their first spring training game tomorrow. Baseball is finally here :)

Any ideas on radio/tv/internet coverage of the game? I suspect since that it is a B game there will not even be an official boxscore available, so we'd be in the mercy of twitter for updates, but I just had to ask :)

Thanks!

There is no media, although some of the Twins and Red Sox media will certainly be in attendance and tweeting. It's technically just a scrimmage. I posted the lineups in the Game Threads to be fun! :)

that's what I figured too... (so twitter it is)

any idea when the Twins' radio crew is going down there?

Obviously this game isn't TV-worthy, but overall I'm disappointed in the lack of Twins TV coverage in Spring Training. I have MLB.TV and I went through the schedule and checked, and the Twins have the fewest televised spring games in the majors with just 6, and I believe half of those are from the opponents' broadcasts. The ones FSN does carry are weekday day games. The Phillies by comparison have 23 telecasts. I imagine FSN is already jam-packed with Wolves and Wild games though.

I know Sunday is the first radio game.
Can ESPN1500.com broadcast ST games?
