Pitchers and Catchers Report: Pitchers and catchers for 10 Major League Baseball teams reported to training camp Monday. Among the storylines this spring are whether New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter can return from his postseason ankle injury in time for Opening Day against the Boston Red Sox April 1 and whether new Sox manager John Farrell can revive the fortunes of the franchise, which finished 69-93 last season. The Houston Astros are beginning their first year in the American League West.

Pitchers And Catchers Report To Spring Training For Delousing

I am 120 miles from Space Coast Stadium, where the Washington Nationals play spring ball. One of the coolest things about seeing a game there is walking to the berm in left field and watching pitchers warm up. You can stand six feet behind the catcher, who is inside a chain link fence, and watch the pitches come scorching in.
