Mets, Yankees back on TV

Let’s face it: The idea of spring training baseball games generally is better than the reality.

The novelty of watching young men gambol about on warm, green grass tends to wear out quickly — even in a winter such as this one.

But there is something special about the first games, and the Mets and Yankees play theirs Saturday, the Mets on Channel 11 and the Yankees on YES.

YES has 14 games overall, as well as a new show called “Yankees Spring Training Report,’’ hosted primarily by Kimberly Jones and Jack Curry and premiering after Sunday’s game.

SNY will produce 16 Mets games — all in HD for the first time — 12 on SNY and four on WPIX.
