Few sentences raise the spirits of baseball fans locked in the depths of winter more than "Pitchers and catchers report."
For dedicated and casual fans alike, spring training offers a splash of sun, the chance to see your favorite players up close and the relaxing rhythms of the pre-season.
This year, pitchers and catchers report no later than Feb. 15, with full-squad workouts the following week. Games in Arizona's Cactus League and Florida's Grapefruit League start Feb. 25. One point to keep in mind: Many of the game's biggest stars will miss much of spring training this year due to the World Baseball Classic, a 16-team tournament from March 5 to 23, with games in San Diego, Miami, Los Angeles, Toronto, Mexico City, Tokyo and San Juan, Puerto Rico. Visit WorldBaseballClassic for information and tickets.
