As we work our way through a cold winter, I always look for any sign that warmer weather is coming.  One such sign arrived recently when the Minnesota Twins announced that 12 spring training games would be televised, and the first is just over a month away.

Fox Sports North will televise 11 of the games, with ESPN adding another Twins spring training broadcast.

Here is the broadcast schedule:

  • Thursday, February, 22 vs University of Minnesota 5 p.m. (Fox Sports North Plus)
  • Sunday, February 25 vs Tampa Bay 12 p.m.
