The wait is officially over: baseball season is back. The Braves had their pitchers and catchers report today, signifying the beginning of Spring Training — a breath of fresh air for you baseball nuts out there like me who are in dire need of 162+ games.
This spring training is a special one for the Braves, as they are officially done in Orlando and open up their new home down in North Port, Florida, and I must say, it looks gorgeous:

This will also be the temporary home of the Florida Fire Frogs.
Two battles begin today: the one for the fifth rotation spot, and the final bullpen spot, which will likely go to a left-hander.
The position players report on February 17th, and the Braves are only ten days away from their first exhibition game of the Spring, against the Baltimore Orioles. Here is a complete list of televised games for this Spring Training.
