BRADENTON, Fla. -- Four Pirates games will be televised on FSN Pittsburgh this Spring Training, and all games are to have audio broadcasts available.

A 7 p.m. game on March 10 vs. the Orioles, a 1 p.m. game vs. the Red Sox on March 19 and a 1 p.m. away game vs. the Yankees on March 26 are also on the slate.

The Pirates' flagship radio station, FM NewsTalk 104.7, will carry 12 spring games, including Saturday's opener against the Tampa Bay Rays at 1 p.m. ET, from Port Charlotte, Fla.

All other Pirates Grapefruit League games can be heard on, with the exception of two split-squad games: Feb. 28 vs. Tampa Bay in Port Charlotte, Fla., and March 12 vs. Toronto in Dunedin, Fla.

Coinciding with the day of the Pirates' regular-season opener against the Cubs at Wrigley Field, FSN Pittsburgh is to transition to ROOT SPORTS beginning April 1.
