Spring Training Schedule Moving Up One Day
League Office Announces Spring Training To Begin On February 20th
Behind closed doors in the league office, the Players Association, league owners, and the Office of the Commissioner have all agreed upon a change that will move the start of Spring Training from February 21st to February 20th.
After a lengthy off-season, the players are antsy to get back on the field. A key deciding factor in the decision is that by moving Spring Training up a day, teams will have an additional day on the backend of Spring Training to finalize rosters prior to Opening Day.
