Today marks two weeks until pitchers and catchers, at least those competing in the World Baseball Classic, report to spring training.
We’ve sat through a long and cold winter, but soon, the best time of the year will be upon us again.
After Super Bowl Sunday, the focus will shift from football to baseball.
The excitement can be felt all around the baseball world, as analysts, players, coaches, front offices, and fans prepare for the dawn of a new season.
On Twitter, MLB Network’s Jon Morosi expressed his excitement for the upcoming 2023 season, as he began the countdown to the start of spring training and the official report date for pitchers and catchers.
NEWS: Pitchers and catchers report two weeks from *today* if they are listed on final @WBCBaseball rosters.
Spring Training is almost here. 😁@MLBNetwork @MLB

It’s almost here, folks.
It certainly has been an entertaining offseason, at least for some teams.
We saw an epic spending spree in the month of December, with teams such as the New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies going all in for 2023 and signing some premier talent.
Then January came, and things began to quiet down a little bit.
A few free agents still remain, but the free agency period is winding down, and that can only mean one thing.
Baseball will be back soon.
The grass will be greener, and the sun will shine brighter.
And while spring training is happening, we’ll have a chance to witness the World Baseball Classic for the first time since 2017, as the best of the best from each country will do battle to see who has the most elite talent.NEXT: Zack Greinke Heads Back To A Familiar Spot
