NESN Will Broadcast 16 Red Sox Spring Training Games
(NESN) will broadcast 16 Red Sox Grapefruit League games in 2016. The schedule begins on February 29th with a double-header against the Northeastern University Huskies and another school located somewhere in Chestnut Hill. In a shocking departure from past years, there will be only two televised games against the Minnesota Twins. Al Franken could not be reached for comment. Other interesting televised tilts include: March 5th against The Evil Empire; March 12th against the Miami Marlins; March 15th against The Bronx Embalmers; March 20th against the Metropolitans; and two final games (April 1st and 2nd) in Toronto against the reigning AL East Champion Blue Jays.
