Just three days before the Mets are set to open their 2017 Grapefruit League schedule against the Red Sox in Fort Myers, Florida, WOR has announced its radio broadcast schedule of New York’s spring training action. 15 games will be broadcast by the Mets’ flagship station, with Howie Rose and Josh Lewin being on hand for their sixth year calling games together.

Six of the WOR radio broadcasts will be on the road, away from New York’s spring training home of Port St. Lucie. The other nine will be at home, and all 15 are set to begin shortly after 1:00 p.m.

Along with Howie and Josh, Wayne Randazzo — the pregame and postgame host during the regular season — will share some of the play-by-play duties.

“There's nothing sweeter than the sounds of summer on the radio while it's still the middle of winter,” said Josh Lewin in the WOR press release, “No one captures that magic like Howie does and it's such a thrill to be working with him and Wayne again.”

Check out the complete radio broadcast schedule below.

Since the Mets’ spring training television schedule features only home dates, the radio broadcasts are a great way for fans to follow the team when it’s away from Port St. Lucie. Plus, many fans won’t be around a television in the middle of the day, anyway.
