Today marks an important day in baseball.
At long last, the game makes its return after a long and boring offseason.
This afternoon, spring training games will take place.
Last year, spring training was put on hold due to the lockout.
However this year, there is no such delay.
Baseball is returning right on time, and we’ll finally have an opportunity to see some live game action.
Fans and players alike are ready to get going.
On Twitter, MLB Cut4 posted a picture of Los Angeles Angels two-way star Shohei Ohtani raising his hand with a caption that read, “Raise your hand if you’re excited for baseball today.”

As expected, a lot of people who read this tweet are going to raise their hands.
Baseball is finally back.
The time has come, and the excitement is palpable throughout the game among fans, players, coaches, executives, umpires, and media members.
The return of baseball is always the perfect way to kick off the spring season.
The weather is getting warmer, the grass is greener, and the sun shines brighter.
We still are a little over a month away from Opening Day.
But when spring training starts, fans know that Opening Day is getting close.
There are three games on the schedule today.
The Boston Red Sox will play host to the Northeastern University Huskies.
The Texas Rangers will be visiting the Kansas City Royals in Surprise, Arizona.
Finally, the San Diego Padres and Seattle Mariners will square off at Peoria Stadium.
