Sure there is a major league game going on right now for the Dodgers, but it's also minor league opening day. Here is a quick primer on how to follow the games all season.

MiLB.tv is an option, and with it you get to watch a number of Triple-A Oklahoma City, Double-A Tulsa and Class-A Great Lakes games. It is $50 for the year, or if you bundle it with an MLB.tv subscription the cost comes down to $25. But even if you don't want to make that kind of investment, you can listen to most minor league games for free.

All four full-season Dodgers affiliates are in action on Thursday night, with a pair of major league players sprinkled in too, with Yasmani Grandal in Nashville and Howie Kendrick in Rancho Cucamonga on rehab assignments.

Opening day rosters: OKC Tulsa Rancho Great Lakes
