It’s February, and Major League Baseball fans know what that means...it’s Spring Training time!
Our favorite MLB players have been working hard all winter long during off-season training. Though they have been out of the sight of fans since October, our teams were always on our minds. It is finally almost time again for nightly baseball broadcasts!
Spring Training is not just a time for Major Leaguers to suit up and take to the field for a new season. It is also an exciting time for MLB fans to get a first glimpse of their favorite teams’ rosters, uniforms, batting orders, last-minute trades, and all sorts of surprises before opening day this year.
As we approach the start of the 2014 baseball season, it seems that Toronto Blue Jays fans in particular can hardly contain their excitement for the start of regular season games. On January 31st, tickets for the Blue Jays home opener went on sale to the public, and on January 31st the tickets completely sold out.
The Jays’ first home game is scheduled for April 4th, 2014. For the next several weeks until the first pitch at Rogers Center, all 54,000 eager attendees will be waiting, no doubt watching Toronto training camp coverage in anticipation.
Major Leaguers are not the only ones swinging their bats this time of year; the start of MLB Spring Training also signifies the approach of Little League, youth, and college baseball seasons worldwide. So, while you’re waiting for opening day at the Rogers Center, don’t miss the sign-up deadline for baseball tryouts!
