Thank goodness for Direct TV! Tonight, CSN Bay Area is broadcasting live the spring training match-up between the San Francisco Giants and our Texas Rangers. If you have Direct TV and subscribe to the sports package, it will be on channel 696 at 8pm central. The Giants are putting Jonathan Sanchez on the mound and for our Rangers, Alexi Ogando is getting his opportunity to start the game. Tommy Hunter is also scheduled to pitch in tonight’s game as well.
The night game in spring training is different for sure but this will be my first televised look at the Texas Rangers (not sure if there have been others that I may not have been aware of). Really excited to see how our boys look and between this, the late night NHL game between the Stars and the Kings and the Mavs playing the Timberwolves, it is an awesome sports night for the DFW area.
Also wanted to give a quick plug to @AktanE on twitter for telling us all where the game was!
