MLB’s Highly Anticipated Spring Training is Underway

Skies are clear, flowers blossom, and the sun shines nationwide as Major League Baseball teams begin spring training! Spring training is the preseason in Major League Baseball, containing a series of exhibitions and practices preceding the upcoming season, allowing new rosters and tryouts to commence. Teams train in Arizona and Florida, organized into the Grapefruit or Cactus League. 


One of the biggest storylines during Spring Training this year was the emergence of new talent. Many teams took the opportunity to give their young prospects a chance to shine, and several players made a strong impression on coaches and fans alike. Anthony Volpe is a highly-touted prospect in the New York Yankees organization. He is known for his outstanding defensive skills at shortstop, ability to hit for power, and average at the plate. Following the conclusion of training, Volpe will make his big league debut for the Yankees on opening day, donning No. 11.


Players and coaches took Spring Training as an opportunity to work on team chemistry and strategies. One team featuring new rotations is the Chicago Cubs, adding Hayden Wesneski to their pitching rotation. Throughout the preseason, the Cubs have shown their improved pitching firepower. This may possibly lead to a playoff appearance, something the team has not seen since 2020.



With the regular season set to begin on March 30th, baseball fans can look forward to another exciting and competitive year of America’s favorite pastime. Opening Day represents a fresh start for all 30 teams from the first pitch to the final out and a chance to set the tone for the rest of the year. Whether you’re a die-hard fan or a casual observer, there’s nothing quite like the excitement and anticipation that comes with the start of a new MLB season.
