There is nothing more exciting than spring training to start the baseball season. Did you know that spring training is almost as old as baseball itself? It first took place in 1870, when the Cincinnati Red Stockings and the Chicago White Stockings held organized baseball camps in New Orleans. Spring-training was finally established as a baseball ritual by 1900, with most American and National League teams heading out of town so players could train and managers could evaluate.
“People ask me what I do in the winter when there’s no baseball. I’ll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring.”
