Oakland A's spring training television & radio schedule: March 21-27

The Athletics have added Thursday's night game against the Texas Rangers to the 95.7 The Game broadcast schedule. Here's how to watch or listen to Athletics spring training games online.

The A's have four games televised on opponent's broadcasts and available on MLB.TV this week, with two of those games being played live on MLB Network. The A's also added Thursday night's contest against the Texas Rangers to the 95.7 the Game schedule, replacing the webcast. The weekend games, as usual, will be broadcast on 95.7 as well. The other weekday games are on the free webcasts with Donny Baarns at the microphone.

Athletics Nation member LoneStranger has made a handy 8.5x11 spring broadcast schedule which you can download and print out to hang in your office cube, though please take note of the change to where you can find Thursday's game.

How to listen to or watch spring games, generally

For televised games, it is simple enough. Subscribe to MLB.TV for $25 a month or $110 a year and you can watch any of the games televised by some television network (regular season games are blacked out in the Bay Area and other Western markets). If you do not want to do that, there are six more live or nearly live games being played on one of the Comcast Sportsnet regional channels or on MLB Network, and one more game on an MLB Network replay.

For radio coverage, most weekday games will be covered on for free on non-mobile devices with Donny Baarns of the Omaha Storm Chasers on the microphone. To access those games, visit 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 account, but you should not have to pay for the 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 online, but require an MLB At Bat/Gameday Audio subscription. You can of course listen to the game on the radio if you happen to be in 95.7's coverage area, but the stream will typically switch over to a syndicated national sports talk program during A's coverage.
