The Houston Astros started Spring Training with an apology.

On Thursday, owner Jim Crane and the players held a press conference at their facility, FITTEAM Ballpark of the Palm Beaches, where they apologized for the first time for their role in the sign stealing scandal.

Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman were the only two players to deliver brief, prepared remarks at the podium.

They said a players' meeting was also held Wednesday night. Crane said it was the first time the group was all together as a team since the scandal broke, explaining that some of the players were emotional.

It was also the first time that new manager Dusty Baker had met a lot of the team. Baker said the players "displayed tremendous remorse."
