How to listen to or watch games, generally
For televised games, it is simple enough. Subscribe to MLB.TV for $20 or $25 a month and you can watch any of the games televised by some television network. If you do not want to do that, there are nine more live games being played on one of the Comcast Sportsnet regional channels or on MLB Network, and five more games on an MLB Network tape delay.
For radio coverage, most weekday games will be covered on MLB.com for free on non-mobile devices with Donny Baarns, the voice of the Visalia Rawhide, on the microphone. To access those games, visit athletics.com and click the headphones or "Listen" button on today's game. If for some reason you get kicked to a screen insisting you buy a subscription, try opening Gameday instead and listening through the "Audio" menu on that screen. You will need to create an mlb.com account, but you should not have to pay for the MLB.com games.
On a mobile device, you will have to buy an MLB At Bat subscription.
Weekend games on 95.7 or games otherwise covered by a terrestrial radio service will not be free, but require an MLB At Bat/Gameday Audio subscription.
