It’s an exciting week ahead as, alongside all of the usual Spring Training games, the Arizona Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Dodgers will be in Australia to play the first two regular season games of the season on Saturday.
Leaving those two games to one side for now, the Spring Training games available to watch via MLB.TV this week are listed below. They include a game between the Dodgers and an Australian national team on Thursday morning that begins at 8 a.m. UK time.
They also include the first live MLB games on the UK ESPN channel of the year, with the Cardinals and Red Sox game on Monday and the Red Sox and Yankees game on Tuesday. These are marked in blue below.
Night games in the States begin in the early hours of the morning for us and the ‘U.K. date’ adjusts for this. So, for example, the night-game between the Rangers and Royals that is listed above as 18 March actually takes place on 17 March in the States and will be stated that way on the MLB.com schedules. I’ve put these cases in itallics to highlight them.
