It's about that time of year again when you put away your football gear and grab your worn-out, dusty gloves, which haven't been used since last summer.

The snow is melting, and as the temperature rises, you are reminded of the warmth and beauty that Spring provides us with.

I'm talking of course about Spring Training.  Baseball is right around the base path, and the Spring Training schedule has been announced for this upcoming season.  

The Phillies have made some scheduling changes this year to boost television ratings, namely airing 20 of their 31 games live on TV.  MLB Network will also have 10 games available to viewers on tape delay.  
Phillies will have 20 of their 31 Grapefruit games aired live on TV. MLB Network will also air 10 Phillies games on tape delay.

The schedule is as follows:

LIVE GAMES:
Phillies hitters and pitchers will not face off in live batting practice sessions today, which is completely OK for some observers as such workouts can become monotonous.
Thankfully for such observers, games are less than a week away. MLB Network today announced its complete broadcast schedule for the spring (it’s pretty insane, there are at least half dozen games on each day).
With Comcast SportsNet and MLB Network, the Phillies will have 20 of their 31 Grapefruit games aired live on TV. MLB Network will also air 10 Phillies games on tape delay.
Here is a handy list for your spring viewing pleasure:
