When does every team report for MLB spring training 2024? Dates, schedules, locations for all 30 clubs

The Super Bowl is in the books. Guess what that means? That’s right, it’s baseball season.

Though it might still be cold out across plenty of the U.S., the best players in the game are going to start their trips down south to sunny Arizona and Florida to begin preparing for the long MLB season ahead.

Most teams will begin migrating south starting Feb. 14, when pitchers and catchers will report to their camps. Some teams, like the Dodgers and Padres, have already arrived at the Cactus League and begun to prepare their players for the year.

When will all teams report for spring training, and when will games begin? Here’s what you need to know about spring training dates, schedules and procedures.

MLB spring training dates 2024

  • Pitchers & catchers report: Feb. 9-15
  • Rest of position players report: Feb. 14-20

Put a little asterisk by the Feb. 9 and 14 dates for the starts. Those are both the Dodgers’ start dates. The Padres are also early, with pitchers and catchers having reported Feb. 11 and Feb. 16 for position players. 

For most teams, pitchers and catchers will report on either Feb. 14 or Feb. 15, and position players will report on either Feb. 19 or Feb. 20.

MLB spring training locations 2024

MLB teams don’t stay home for the winter. When it’s time to get ramped up for the season, they take off to the balmy south in Arizona and Florida. Teams that play in Arizona are in the Cactus League, while teams in Florida are in the Grapefruit League.

Teams will often share stadiums with other teams in towns and cities scattered across the two states. Over the course of a month, they’ll go through the motions of getting ready for the season and have games against each other. Teams only play against the other teams in their state. So, for example, the Dodgers — whose spring facilities are located in Arizona — will not face off against the Braves — whose spring facilities are located in Florida — during spring training.

Here is a look at the spring training home for each MLB team.
