The Complete Guide to Spring Training 2023 / Arizona
We’ve come a long way since 2019—the last “normal” spring-training season—and all signs indicate that 2023 will finally be the time when we can worry less about labor lockouts and ballpark COVID restrictions and worry more about what’s happening on the field. A time for fresh beginnings.
And spring training is a time of new beginnings, when the baseball world preps for another season, as rookies fight for roster spots and veterans prep for another campaign. Every team in spring training has a shot to contend for a title, as life on the diamond begins anew.
This book is meant for all types of spring-training fans. Hardcore baseball fans scout their favorite teams and eagerly track every open roster spot. Casual fans head to spring training in search of the perfect Florida experience, happy to sip a brew at the outfield bar.
