Filed Under: St. Louis Cardinals
Perhaps you aren't in the St. Louis area. Perhaps you are a far-flung Cardinal fan, thrown outside the general orbit of Busch Stadium. You get your fix by watching Fox Sports Midwest and their coverage of the Redbirds and you've been wondering what they are going to do for the home opener.
Wonder no more, as they've released the following schedule. The last couple of years there have been some criticisms of the opener coverage, from going to commercials at the wrong time to not covering certain things, but I have heard that they know about that and are determined not to have that happen again this year. It should be a wonderful day to sit in front of the TV and watch Cardinal programming!
FOX SPORTS MIDWEST TO AIR MORE THAN 10 HOURS OF CARDS PROGRAMMING AROUND HOME OPENER
FOX Sports Midwest will air more than 10 hours of programming around the 2012 home opener as the Cardinals raise their 11th World Series banner and start their home schedule against the Cubs. FOX Sports Midwest's broadcast will include live coverage of the on-field ceremonies starting at 1:30 p.m.
Game 6 Retrospective during Cardinals Live pregame show (12:30 p.m.)
The Cardinals Live pregame show at 12:30 p.m. will include a retrospective on Game 6 of the World Series with thoughts from the players involved. Pat Parris, Jim Hayes and Cal Eldred host Cardinals Live.
Home Opener Ceremonies (1:30 p.m.)
Ceremonies will be televised live on FOX Sports Midwest. The on-field parade is also scheduled to be streamed at FOXSportsMidwest.com.
