The Rockies TV schedule was also announced on Tuesday.
The Rockies and AT&T Sports Net Rocky Mountain announced that they will broadcast all 162 regular-season games in 2021 (barring any games that are nationally broadcast in exclusivity). Outside of the shortened 2020 season, it will be the first time that the club will have all games broadcast.
Originally, prior to the stoppage due to the pandemic, AT&T Sports was only going to broadcast 150 games of the regular season and the other 12 games, which were mainly weekday, day games, were not going to be televised.
All of the Rockies television crew will be returning as well, including Drew Goodman, Jeff Huson, Ryan Spilborghs, Jenny Cavnar, Marc Stout, and Cory Sullivan.
The first spring training TV game will be broadcast today at 1 PM M.T. when the Rockies take on the San Diego Padres.
The Rockies are entering the first year of their new television contract with AT&T Sports Net.
C.J. Cron on being the “veteran guy” on the Rockies and his new relationships with the Rockies
During the game on Tuesday but after he had been pulled from the game, Rockies non-roster invitee C.J. Cron spoke with the media, including Rox Pile, about being the “veteran guy” that guys can rely on to talk about things. One of the guys that has formed a good relationship with Cron is Josh Fuentes, who is in competition with Cron for the everyday first baseman job.
Here’s what Cron had to say about their relationship:
"“I think my job coming in was to be that ‘veteran’ guy and to try to keep the clubhouse loose,” said Cron. “Josh is obviously a great dude. We always talk a bunch over there at first. Sometimes, groundballs take a little bit longer than we’d like so we talk about some stuff. He’s a good kid. Just whatever kind of questions (Fuentes or anybody else has), (I’m) just trying to help the team.”"
