The announcement of dates for MLB Spring Training workouts is a seemingly innocuous press release, but for baseball fans, it’s reason to celebrate. We can finally pinpoint a day on all our calendars, and then spend the next 36 days or so luxuriating in that sweet anticipation.
For the Halos, we’re looking at February 15th for pitchers and catchers to begin their workouts in Arizona, for everybody else, it’ll be February 18th.
Man, it seems like yesterday we were just entering the offseason after witnessing the worst Angels season since 1999, and now it’s January 2017, and we’re already on the countdown clock for when Mike Trout and the boys show up at camp.
So, who’s going to AZ this year? I won’t be there, but I expect to live vicariously through many of you, per usual.
