See when pitchers and catchers report to spring training


Spring is in the air.

That means it's about that time for pitchers and catchers to start gearing up for the new Major League Baseball season. They'll soon be the first to report to their team's spring training facilities in either Arizona or Florida.

Pitchers and catchers participating in the World Baseball Classic this March will report on Monday, Feb. 13. The reporting dates for those not taking part in the tournament ranges from Feb. 15 to Feb. 17.

Position players in the WBC will report to camp on Feb. 16, while non-participating players will arrive either Feb. 20 or Feb. 21.

Here are the dates for when each team's pitchers and catchers arrive, followed by the date for position players.
