One month to pitchers and catchers

One month from today begins the baseball fans countdown to opening day when pitchers and catchers report on February 14th, yes, on Valentines Day.

That first day of camp is the start of a 7 month love affair with the great game of baseball.

Camp opens for all players on February 19th, ans spring games begin around Feb. 25 or 26th.

My Detroit Tigers begin play with their annual exhibition with Florida Southern on Feb. 25th @ Joker Marchant Stadium in Lakeland.

This is the 75th season the Tigers have trained in Lakeland, the longest tenure of any team and city in baseball spring training history.

In today's issue of USA Today you can find complete spring schedules for both our Grapefruit League here in Florida, and the Cactus League out in Arizona.

Here's to hearing that thing we baseball fans can't wait to ball!
