Blue Jays' first spring game to air on MLB Network


DUNEDIN, Fla. -- Blue Jays fans will get a little bonus coverage this spring after it was announced that MLB Network is set to air the club's first game of the Grapefruit League season on Wednesday at 1:05 p.m. ET.

MLB Network made its debut in Canada earlier this year and is available to subscribers of Rogers Cable. The network will air Wednesday afternoon's game against the Phillies as part of its overall package that includes coverage of 200 Major League games in Spring Training.

There will be a total of 18 Blue Jays games available on MLB Network, and eight of those can be watched in Canada. Two games will be live with another six to air on a tape delay.

The live games are the one on Wednesday against the Phillies and another one coming on March 23 against the Yankees. The tape-delayed games include: March 1 vs. the Orioles, March 3 vs. the Twins, March 4 vs. the Phillies, March 9 vs. the Astros, March 20 vs. the Phillies and March 27 vs. the Phillies.

Rogers Sportsnet also plans to air 10 games this spring. Every Blue Jays game during Spring Training can be heard either on MLB.com or Sportsnet The Fan590.
