In less than five weeks, Royals fans once again will be able to listen to their favorite team’s games on the radio.

The Royals and KCSP (610 AM) on Friday announced the first 14 broadcasts of spring-training games, including the spring opener on March 2.

At least six more broadcasts will be announced when the NCAA Tournament schedule is released. KCSP also broadcast Kansas basketball games.

The Royals said every spring-training contest will be webcast on royals.com, including those games on KCSP.

Royals pitchers and catchers report to spring training in Surprise, Ariz., on Feb. 18. The full squad reports on Feb. 22.

Star sports columnist Sam Mellinger talks about Alex Gordon's impact on the Royals baseball team since he was signed in 2005. In Gordon's first year, the team lost 106 games.
