It seems like only yesterday that the Texas Rangers defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 2023 World Series. But now that the weather is warming up, all 30 MLB teams have reported to either Florida's Grapefruit League or Arizona's Cactus League for Spring Training to get ready for MLB Opening Day at the end of March.

For the diehard baseball fans who just can't wait that long to see their team in action, we have everything you need to know about how to watch 2024 MLB Spring Training games. 

Where to watch 2024 MLB Spring Training games 

If you can't make it out to Florida or Arizona, you might be wondering how to watch your team at Spring Training. Thankfully, you have some options. 

Fans who subscribe to MLB.TV can watch several out-of-market games live, either online or on a supported device. This year, MLB.TV will feature over 50 live spring training games over the six-week period, including their 30 Clubs in 15 Days promotion starting Wednesday, Feb. 28 with the Los Angeles Dodgers and Pittsburgh Pirates.

Not all games will be broadcast on MLB.TV because they have to be televised to begin with; if a team isn't televising the game, it won't be available to watch on MLB.TV. It's also possible that if one team's game isn't being televised, the opposing team will be. In that case, you might be able to watch on the opposing team's feed, which also means you'll be listening to their commentators. 

Every team will broadcast at least some of their games in their home markets, and we've compiled the broadcast schedules for each team below. While you're there you can also see which games are available on the radio or streaming on a team's website if it's not being televised.

There will also be several nationally televised games on ESPN.

ESPN and ESPN Plus will also broadcast select MLB games once the regular season stars, so if you want to be sure you have access to those games, you can sign up for a live TV streaming service carrying ESPN like FuboTV, Hulu with Live TV, YouTube TV and Sling TV. For ESPN Plus, you can either sign up for the streaming service directly or package it with the Disney Bundle.  

How to watch 2024 MLB Spring Training games by team 

Each MLB team has its own TV licenses within its broadcast area, and that means that there are a certain number of games that will be televised. To watch your local market team, find the regional sports network that they air games on and see if that is available on either your traditional pay-TV service or if a live TV streaming service carries the channel. 

If a game you want to watch is outside your TV market, you might be able to watch the game on MLB.TV, so be sure to check the schedule. 

Also note that while only certain games are televised in your local market, there are other ways to watch (or listen), including webcasts on the team's website or on the local radio. 

Again, it's best to check the schedule to see the broadcast schedule for each game so we’ve included links to all 30 teams' broadcast schedules for Spring Training for your convenience.
