ST. LOUIS, Mo., March 7, 2017 – The St. Louis Cardinals today announced that every 2017 regular season game will be televised locally or nationally as well as broadcast on the Cardinals Radio Network.
In its 24th season with the team and its seventh as the exclusive local TV home of the Cardinals, FOX Sports Midwest is scheduled to carry 147 regular season games this season. Each of the 147 telecasts will also be streamed live on the FOX Sports GO app and at FOXSportsGo.com, available to customers of participating pay television providers who receive Cardinals games on FOX Sports Midwest.
