Yankees announce 2013 Spring Training schedule

I don’t know about you guys but I am dying for baseball. And I realize, it’s only December and we have a while before things get started but the Yankees announced some dates today so now we know just what numbers to use for our countdowns. (Oh come on, you know you do a countdown to Spring Training. We all do it.)

February 12th – Pitchers and catchers report to camp

February 13th – First workout

February 17th – Position players report to camp

February 18th – First full squad workout

Apparently February 12th is the earliest date they’ll ever report to camp, in part because of the World Baseball Classic. And speaking of the World Baseball Classic, the Yankees will be playing the Dominican team in a Spring Training game on March 6th. Why is this important? Well, our very own Robinson Cano is playing for the Dominican team.

The whole Spring Training schedule can be found here.

Countdown: Two months!
