It’s here! The official start of Spring Training, and with it, the 2019 Chicago Cubs season. The four most beautiful words in a baseball fan’s vernacular after a long, often ugly, winter: pitchers and catchers report!
The first official workout will be tomorrow, and position players are due on February 17. Of course, as we discussed last night, lots of Cubs are already in camp, and indeed have been for a while. But having these official dates is still a fun marker of pages being turned and what-have-you.
SO TURN THAT PAGE AND GET READY FOR A NEW SEASON.
The Cubs’ first Spring Training game is February 23, so just over 10 days from now. Opening Day is March 28.
