Spring Training Is Here

Spring Training

As we get nearly halfway through the month of February and into March, the weather in Florida begins to heat up and the spring season is upon us. Many baseball fans, young and old, have been looking forward to this time for the past three months. Spring training and the 2010 baseball season have finally arrived. Pitchers and catchers have already reported to camp and many of the position players will fill their lockers within the next few weeks. Spring training is a time to work on the basics, adjust your mechanics, get to know your new teammates and play the same freely and for fun. The real pressure doesn’t start for another month now; therefore, players enjoy this time while it lasts. For many of the young players spring training is a time to showcase their talent in front of the coaches in hopes that somebody remembers the number on their jersey. A majority of the 30 major league teams have spread out their spring training complexes throughout Florida and Arizona. A few teams have their complexes in Sarasota and Bradenton, making it is easy for us IMG kids to spend a day watching and learning from them. The past two World Series Champions, the Philadelphia Phillies and New York Yankees, host their training camps no farther than an hour away from IMG. Spring training attracts many people from the North anxiously waiting to escape the cold weather and to get a glimpse at their favorite players before the season begins. Good luck to each and every Major League team as they finally begin their quest for the 2010 World Series Championship.
