With much of the country still digging out from underneath snow dropped by this week’s blizzards, many Florida towns are preparing for the harbingers of spring. This is the month that MLB spring training camps start for most major league baseball camps, and the end of the month will see the first MLB games of the 2016 season. Admittedly, those games won’t count toward any titles, but they will rack up a lot of fun for both fans and players, according to many fans who make their travel plans to coincide with baseball’s spring training in Florida.
For many baseball fans, spring training means a chance to watch their favorite teams and favorite players work out in baseball games that don’t carry the high stakes of regular season games. Their favorite games are the ones that start even before the pre-season baseball games – the spring training games that pit major league baseball players against college teams. These games, such as the February 28 game between the Philadelphia Phillies and the University of Tampa Spartans, give the pro players a chance to limber up their competitive muscle while providing the college players a chance to work out against some serious talent. In addition to the Phillies game – which will be the team’s first official outing since their disastrous 99-loss 2015 season – that final weekend in February will feature the Pittsburgh Pirates Black & Gold game and a showdown between the Boston Red Sox and the combined might of Boston College and Northeastern.
Once the exhibition games are out of the way, the MLB teams start limbering up in earnest with a schedule of Grapefruit League games that pit them against each other in preparation for the regular season. Spring training games offer fans a chance to watch their favorite players in a more relaxed setting while maintaining the competitive edge that provides excitement.
Families looking for a warm getaway without the long lines and commercialized excesses of the major theme parks or the wildness associated with Spring Break, often choose spring training getaways, said one travel agent. With games scheduled in cities along Florida’s sunniest beaches, spring training vacations offer the best of all worlds rolled into one. Florida visitors who’d like to add a spring training game into their vacation schedule can often find MLB spring training game tickets on sale at third party ticket sellers like SportsTicketBank.com, where there are tickets available for all spring training and Grapefruit League games currently available.
