Every Cardinals game will be aired this season
Wednesday, February 9, 2011
ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis Cardinals fans will have an opportunity to see their team play every game this season.
The Cardinals announced Wednesday that Fox Sports Midwest will televise 152 of the 162 regular-season games in 2011, starting with the opener on March 31 against San Diego at Busch Stadium.
The other 10 games are scheduled for national TV — nine on Fox and one on ESPN. ESPN could add games to its Sunday night schedule, which would reduce the number on Fox.
The Cardinals said that in 2010, Cardinals telecasts on Fox Sports Midwest posted the highest local market TV ratings in all of Major League Baseball. The Fox Sports Midwest telecasts of Cardinals games are shown in nine states.
