This just in: Major League Baseball has announced that they are canceling the remainder of Spring Training. The start of the 2020 regular season is also being pushed back.
Thanks a lot, COVID-19.

Spring Training is underway, and regular season baseball is right around the corner!
Spring training means flowers, people coming outdoors, sunshine, optimism and baseball. Spring training is a time to think about being young again.
Workouts begin today for many teams. Welcome back, baseball!
People who write about spring training not being necessary have never tried to throw a baseball.
I can already hear the crack of the bat and the popping of baseballs into mitts.
You wouldn’t know it from the fresh blanket of snow on the ground around here this morning, but spring is right around the corner!
