Major League Spring Training



Cactus League




Grapefruit League




Spring Training is a part of Major League Baseball and is a series of practices and exhibition games preceding the start of the baseball season. It allows new players to audition for position spots, and gives existing team players practice time. Spring training typically lasts almost two months, starting in mid February and running until just before the season opening day , traditionally the first week of April.Spring training has always attracted fan attention, drawing crowds and fans to  watch their favorite teams play, and spring training usually coincides with spring break for many University students.

 Pitchers and catchers report to spring training first because pitchers benefit from a longer training period due to the exhaustive nature of the position. A week or two later, the position players arrive and team practice begins.
