When does every team report for MLB spring training 2024? Dates, schedules, locations for all 30 clubs | Sporting News (2024)

The Super Bowl is in the books. Guess what that means? That's right, it's baseball season.

Though it might still be cold out across plenty of the U.S., the best players in the game are going to start their trips down south to sunny Arizona and Florida to begin preparing for the long MLB season ahead.

Most teams will begin migrating south starting Feb. 14, when pitchers and catchers will report to their camps. Some teams, like the Dodgers and Padres, have already arrived at the Cactus League and begun to prepare their players for the year.

MLB spring training schedules 2024

The Dodgers and Padres will kick off spring training with a game against each other Feb. 22. The next day, the two will play against each other for a second time, as will the White Sox and Cubs, Royals and Rangers, and Diamondbacks and Rockies.

On Feb. 24, all teams will officially be in action. There will be a few other special events mixed in with regular spring training games before Opening Day. The Red Sox and Rays will play in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, in spring training games from March 9-10.

There will also be two regular-season games before spring training officially comes to an end. The Dodgers and Padres will meet in Seoul, South Korea, for the Seoul Series from March 20-21. Those two games will count toward their 162-game season. Those will be the first two MLB games played in Korea.

MLB teams will return to their home stadiums starting March 24, where there will be three days of exhibition games before the season officially begins March 28.

MLB spring training locations 2024

MLB teams don't stay home for the winter. When it's time to get ramped up for the season, they take off to the balmy south in Arizona and Florida. Teams that play in Arizona are in the Cactus League, while teams in Florida are in the Grapefruit League.

Teams will often share stadiums with other teams in towns and cities scattered across the two states. Over the course of a month, they'll go through the motions of getting ready for the season and have games against each other. Teams only play against the other teams in their state. So, for example, the Dodgers — whose spring facilities are located in Arizona — will not face off against the Braves — whose spring facilities are located in Florida — during spring training.

Here is a look at the spring training home for each MLB team.
