Spring Training, a Florida Tradition

    By Spark

    With fantastic weather as a lure and even warmer hospitality it’s no wonder that as many as 15 Major League Baseball teams head to Florida for spring training each year.

    Beginning in late February and running up to their season openers in early April these teams affectionately known as the Grapefruit League keep alive a tradition that began back in the early 1900s.

    What’s more major league teams aren’t the only ones flocking to Florida for spring training — the fans also come. Why? Because there’s nothing like it.
