The spring season is officially underway.
It has been a long and cold winter, but at long last, Opening Day is approaching.
In fact, we’re down to just one week before the big day.
Regular season games will begin on Thursday, March 30.
The offseason has come and gone, as has the World Baseball Classic.
Soon, spring training games will come to an end, and teams will break camp with their 26-man rosters for Opening Day.
On Twitter, MLB posted a cool graphic featuring stars such as Jeremy Pena, Francisco Lindor, and Nolan Arenado to celebrate the fact that the big day is just one week away.

Things are getting exciting.
The offseason is over, as is the winter season.
This can only mean one thing, that baseball is almost back.
This time, we didn’t have to sit through a lockout.
Things proceeded as normal over the winter and the 2023 season will indeed start on time, without any major issues holding the sport down.
Things may look a little bit different with some new rules in place and some familiar faces no longer present within the sport.
However, one thing that hasn’t changed is the joy that baseball brings and how it signals a new beginning each year.
The weather will getting warmer soon, and ballparks will be full of fans who are excited to see their favorite teams in action.
Winter is officially over, and now we only have one more week to wait until Opening Day is finally upon us once again.NEXT: Cardinals Have A Contingency Plan After Losing A Key Starter
