What do you do in the fall when there are no baseball games being played? You wait for spring, of course! Spring training is here, and the best teams in the nation are looking forward to the upcoming regular season.
Spring training has long been a regular practice of baseball teams around the country. As early as 1870, teams were gearing up for a new season by adding in extra practice games. The first known spring training session was when the Cincinnati Red Stockings and the Chicago White Stockings held baseball camps in New Orleans in 1870. This allowed the teams and coaches to decide which veterans were nonessential and which rookies were more valuable. By 1900, spring training was a well-established baseball tradition. Since then, the Cactus and Grapefruit leagues have formed in Arizona and Florida as spring training sites. Long known as the American pastime, baseball continues to bring family and friends together every spring.
