Blarney Stone to bring five more years of Tigers baseball to Northern Michigan
That means Northern Michigan fans can tune into Y101.1 to hear all the action for each of the 162 regular-season games – and all Tigers post-season games.
Y101 will also air several spring-training games, starting Tuesday, March 1, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Other preseason games on Y101 include: Saturday, March 5, against the Washington Nationals; Sunday, March 13, against the Pirates; Sunday, March 20, against the Atlanta Braves; and Sunday, March 27, against the Houston Astros. First pitch for each game is at 1:05 p.m.
The Tigers start the season in April, and Q100.3 will help celebrate with two “Opening Day” parties.
The first will be on Tuesday, April 5, when the Tigers begin their season on the road against the Florida Marlins. JC will be broadcasting live from The Firehouse in St. Helen, and listeners can win a pair of tickets to an upcoming Tigers game, plus Q100 T-shirts in our Tiger Trivia contest.
The game will air on Y101.1, starting with the pregame show at 6:45 p.m. First pitch is at 7:10 p.m.
The Q100.3 party is on again when the Tigers head north for their home opener on April 8 against the New York Yankees. This time, JC will be broadcasting life from Fred’s of Roscommon from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Listeners can register to win more great prizes and Q100.1 T-shirts.
Pregame starts at 12:40 p.m., with the first pitch at 1:08 p.m. Hear all the action on Y101.
Baseball is right around the corner. Tigers pitchers and catchers report to camp on Friday, Feb. 19, with the first full-squad workout on Tuesday, Feb. 23.
