And as the first primer to the start of baseball’s preseason, we’ll update you on the spring training locations for all the teams. Let’s start on the West coast…well Arizona is kind of just a desert, but it’s close enough. The Reds recently moved here from Florida because trashy Arizona is better than trashy Florida. Right?
Chicago, Milwaukee, Cincinnati, and Cleveland have strayed a little further west than you might think, but somebody had to do it.
Now on to the dirty South. Old people in particular love spring training games because it feels like the old time with bleachers and $1 hot dogs. Perfect for Florida. Here it is.
Hmm. Tampa moves a little south for spring training and Miami moves a little north. There must be something to this. Keep counting the days until pitchers and catchers report.
H/T to MLB for the maps.
