This week, Major League Baseball teams will kick off spring training. The 2021 season is set to be a full, 162-game slate with Opening Day on the calendar for April 1. The league and the players have worked out COVID-19 health and safety protocols for the season, and spring training will have a different look in 2021.
MLB released the reporting dates for each team on Tuesday. Each club sets its own spring training reporting dates each year, though all camps open the same week. Pitchers and catchers always arrive first. The position players don't have to show up until a few days later.
