The Colorado Rockies and ROOT Sports announced the 2017 broadcast schedule for television today. ROOT Sports will televise six spring training games and 150 regular season games again this year.
The first spring training Rockies game that ROOT Sports will televise is March 20 against the Chicago Cubs. ROOT will also televise Cactus League games on March 22, 24, 25, 31, and April 1. There will most likely be other Rockies spring training games televised on MLB Network or available on MLB.TV for those who have a subscription.
CORRECTION: The March 31 game actually has a 7:40 p.m. MT start time, while the April 1 contest will begin at 1:10 p.m. MT.
There will also be 24 Rockies spring training games, including the opener this Saturday against the Arizona Diamondbacks, broadcast on the radio. For a complete list of spring training games on radio be sure to check out 850 KOA’s website. Some of the games will be broadcast on their partner station KDSP, so it would be worthwhile to bookmark that schedule. Since every Rockies regular season game is covered on radio, there is no official schedule for those games.
ROOT also announced which 150 regular season games they will be broadcasting this year. The 12 dates that the network will skip this season are: May 4, 18, 25; June 22, 28; July 6, 19; August 3, 17, 24, 30; and September 14.
