A leap year means an extra day of spring training baseball. With the weather as inconsistent as ever in the midwest, it’s refreshing (and makes many of us jealous, for sure) to see sunny skies and highs in the 80s in Florida. The baseball makes it even better.. even if it does mean very, very little.
In Saturday’s exhibition game, the Cardinals will be back at Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium for the first time since Wednesday. Carlos Martinez will make his first start of the season — his second appearance — when the Cardinals take on the defending World Series champion Washington Nationals.
First pitch from Jupiter is scheduled for 12:05 PM Central time. This game will be aired on Fox Sports Midwest, MLB Network, KMOX and the Cardinals Radio Network. You may also follow along on MLB.com Gameday and chat in this thread.
