ROOT Sports, the local television affiliate of the Colorado Rockies, will televise 150 regular season game and six more spring training games for the 2016 season, the two organizations announced on Monday afternoon.

Drew Goodman will once again be in charge of play-by-play for the television broadcasts, with Ryan Spilborghs and Jeff Huson splitting duties as in-game analysts. Of course, the Rockies' longtime color commentator, George Frazier, retired at the end of the 2015 season.

Jenny Cavnar and Marc Stout will once again split sideline duties on the field during games, and both will helm the pre- and post-game shows. They will be joined by Spilborghs, Huson and Cory Sullivan on a rotating basis before and after games throughout the season.

"We look forward to another great year with our longtime partner ROOT SPORTS," said Rockies' Chief Operating Officer Greg Feasel in a press release on Monday.

"Their on-air personalities and production personnel are excellent collaborators with our organization and the quality of their production, from game coverage to special programming, represents Colorado Rockies Baseball in the best way possible to fans throughout the Rocky Mountain region."

New for this season, ROOT will debut a show called The Club/Colorado Rockies. Airing on Sunday afternoons following the conclusion of the Toyota Postgame Show, the new program will run for a half-an-hour and is designed to give fans an inside look at the team and the front office.

Coverage begins on March 14 with ROOT Sports' first spring training broadcast for the Rockies' game against the Seattle Mariners.
