NESN has released a schedule of the fifteen Boston Red Sox games that they will televise during spring training in 2017, starting this week.

The Red Sox open their spring schedule with a game at JetBlue Park against Northeastern University on February 23, but fans will have to wait a couple of days to begin watching games on TV.

These are merely exhibition games, but they give us a little taste of baseball to tide us over until the regular season.
