Mariners Aiming to Broadcast Intrasquad Games

Fans may get a chance to see the M's before the scheduled July 23-24 start of the season.

Per Ryan Divish, the Mariners are set to begin playing intrasquad games on July 10 and have had discussions about potentially broadcasting the action on ROOT Sports and 710 ESPN Seattle. No official announcement has been made by the organization, though it is confirmed that they will be live-streaming team workouts on their official YouTube and Facebook pages beginning Monday.

What should excite fans here – other than the fact that they’ll get to see the Mariners play live baseball for the first time since mid-March – is that it may be an opportunity to actually see some of the organization’s top prospects play on live television. With no guarantee of who may or may not be called up in the upcoming 60-game season, this may be the only chance to see the likes of Jarred Kelenic, Julio Rodriguez, Emerson Hancock, and others play (kind of) real baseball this year.

Divish added that, in order to limit the potential spread of COVID-19, only the players who are set to play in the intrasquad game will be present during play, while everyone else will workout in the morning on the day of.

If they do wind up broadcasting the games in some form or fashion, we’ll be sure to test out the ‘live game chat’ idea we’d like to enact during the season utilizing our brand-new comments section below.
