Spring Training report dates set
Finally, some exciting news for Mets fans. The team announced today that the Spring Training report date is Tuesday, Feb. 15 for pitchers and catchers, and Saturday, Feb. 19 for everyone else. The first pitcher/catcher workout will take place on Feb. 17, the first full-squad workout on Feb. 21.
If you’ve never been down to Port St. Lucie for Spring Training, some advice: games are fun, and come highly recommended. But if you want to get up and close with the players, consider heading down for one of the first couple weeks before the games start. Players move from field to field doing drills, often stopping at the sidelines to sign autographs and chat with fans.
The first game, by the way, is Feb. 26 at Digital Domain Park.
