The Philadelphia Phillies have announced their reporting dates for Spring Training 2016. They are as follows:
Pitchers and Catchers: February 17th
First Workout for Pitchers and Catchers: February 18th
Position Players: February 22nd
First Full Workout: February 23rd
Spring Training means a little more this year than in previous seasons. There are battles at nearly every position, especially for rotation spots. Young players and veterans alike will be competing to make the roster this spring. This is the beginning of a new era of Philadelphia baseball and it will be interesting to see which players break away from the pack.
The Phillies first Spring Training game is against the University of Tampa on February 28th.
