The Pirates’ radio flagship, “FM NewsTalk” WPGB-FM (104.7) will carry 12 spring training games, beginning with a Feb. 28 “Grapefruit League” tilt against the Philadelphia Phillies in Clearwater, Fla., the team announced today.

Also included is the Pirates’ first-ever spring training night game at its home field in Bradenton, Fla., on March 7.

In addition, FSN Pittsburgh will cablecast games against the New York Yankees on March 19 and the Minnesota Twins on March 25.

Six games also will be webcast on the Pirates’ website, with the first at 1:05 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 29.

If you’re watching those games at work, try to sob quietly so you don’t disturb other people.
