Spring training is already in full swing, which means that Opening Day isn't far behind. The Guardians will suit up for Opening Day on March 28 to start a series on the road against Oakland.

We're assuming you won't be making the trip out west to take in the game, so you need a way to watch.

That's where we come in.

The baseball season is long, and the list of potential ways to watch it is no different. The Guardians have simplified things for fans a bit compared to other teams, but there are still a host of exceptions that are just as confusing as you'd think. Here are a few tips to make everything a little clearer.
