From the press release, chicken grease:

FOX Sports Ohio will broadcast three (3) Reds 2010 Spring Training Games Beginning March 5.

CINCINNATI, OHIO – FOX Sports Ohio is excited to announce its 2010 Cincinnati Reds spring training television schedule. As the Cincinnati Reds enter their first Spring Training at Goodyear Ballpark in Goodyear, Arizona, FOX Sports Ohio will be televising three (3) Reds Spring Training games this preseason as follows:

Friday, March 5 Reds vs. Cleveland Indians 3:05pm
Thursday, March 18 Reds @ Cleveland Indians 4:05pm
Monday, March 22 Reds vs. Colorado Rockies 4:05pm

March 5th marks the Reds’ first ever home game at Goodyear Ballpark, when they will take on the Cleveland Indians, who also play their home games at Goodyear Ballpark.

As the two Ohio-based teams share the ballpark, FOX Sports Ohio will partner with SportsTime Ohio (STO), the Indians television rights holder, in sharing game telecasts. FOX Sports Ohio will produce the March 5th game and share it with STO. In return, STO will originate the March 18th game, when the Reds once again battle the Indians, and share it with FOX Sports Ohio.

During the FOX Sports Ohio telecast on March 5th, fans will get a tour of the new Reds training facilities in Goodyear. Paul Keels, the newest member of the FOX Sports Ohio Reds broadcast team, will also be introduced for the first time. The main Reds play by play announcer Thom Brennaman will call the game alongside color analyst Chris Welsh. STO’s color analyst Rick Manning will also join them in the booth during the game.

On the STO-produced March 18th Reds-Indians game, Reds color analyst Chris Welsh will join Indians broadcasters Rick Manning and Matt Underwood in the broadcast booth.

FOX Sports Ohio will conclude their 2010 Cincinnati Reds’ spring training coverage with the March 22nd telecast between the Reds and the Colorado Rockies.

“We’re excited about this year’s slate of Spring Training games, and giving fans a first hand look in the Red’s new facility at Goodyear,” said Henry Ford, Senior Vice President and General Manager, FOX Sports Ohio. “The addition of partnering with SportsTime Ohio to distribute a couple of Reds vs. Indians match-ups will add a different element for viewers as well.”
