Michael Newton reminds us that MLB.com Gameday Radio is up and running for a price of $14.95 for Spring Training and regular season. He adds that windowsmedia.com is MLB.com’s partner. Although Thursday’s schedule is not up, we should expect to see KMOX network broadcasts of Spring Training games streamed on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, along with occasional opponent team broadcasts on other days.
MLB.tv is also available for $79.95 for the season or $14.95 per month. Note this offer is lower priced than last season, but offers “over 200 games per month”.

Cardinals 2004 Regular Season TV Schedule Released
Ron Jacober, KMOX Sports Director, has confirmed to me that their plans for Cardinal Spring Training broadcasts remain the same as past seasons. KMOX will air all Saturday and Sunday games (this should begin with the game against the Marlins on March 6). They will also provide broadcast feeds of Tuesday and Thursday games for optional use by their Cardinal network affiliates. KMOX does not air these midweek games, but includes game highlights during Sports Open Line.
For those who are outside the regular listening areas, look to mlb.com to provide more information about their 2004 internet radio plans soon. In the past, they provided free internet feeds for Spring Training, and moved to a fee model for the regular season ($19.95 for all teams or $11.95 for one team). It wouldn’t surprise me to see a similar arrangement in 2004, but this is unconfirmed.
