Orioles pitchers and catchers report
While the players have been trickling in for weeks, Thursday officially marked the day for all Orioles pitchers and catchers to report to Ed Smith Stadium.
While Baltimore was hit with a huge snowstorm, the team’s spring facility in Sarasota, Fla. experienced mild temperature as numerous players worked out in advance of Friday’s first official pitchers and catchers practice.
Fans are invited to watch the team’s workouts on the back fields at the complex each day until March 1, when home games begin. There is no charge to attend, and free parking is available in the East Lot off 12th Street and Tuttle Avenue.
Orioles pitchers and catchers will take the field at approximately noon on Friday, February 14. The club will work out from approximately 9:15 a.m. – noon each day thereafter, leading up to the first home game against the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday, March 1. The first full team workout will be held on Wednesday, February 19.
Tickets for the Orioles’ spring training home games are available now at http://www.orioles.com/spring and at the Ed Smith Stadium Box Office each day from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
