After a four month wait, baseball action begins again in a little while with the first Spring Training games of 2007.
I do enjoy listening to Spring Training games on the Gameday Audio service at MLB.com. The radio format suits the laid-back atmosphere that the games are played in.Â Hearing Frank Thomas smack a homer in his first at-bat for the A’s last Spring was one of my personal highlights.Â The radio commentary is a great way to ease yourself back into the baseball season.Â Close the curtains to shut out the British wind and rain, stick on your headphones, shut your eyes and transport yourself to the sunny climate of Florida or Arizona.Â The radio announcers will do the rest, letting you picture the blazing sun shining over the diamond and the vibrant green outfield.
They are also generally quite keen to help you picture the attractive females in the crowd and the taste and smell of the hot dogs!Â What more could you want!
Fans of the Mets and the Tigers will be able to see their sides in action on MLB.TV in about half an hour’s time, with the Red Sox and the Twins facing each other in a night game.Â You can listen to the White Sox-Rockies game on Gameday Audio as well as the Braves’ contest against Georgia Tech.
