History of Spring Training
The idea of preparing for the upcoming season weeks in advance came about in the late 1890’s when the Chicago Cubs president took his team down to Hot Springs, Arkansas for early conditioning. Once the season had started and the team was outperforming most of the league, other teams began taking notice, eventually beginning spring training programs themselves. As more teams began adding spring training to their preseason regiment, spring training games came to fruition. Over time teams broke off into the Grapefruit League and the Cactus League, each representing the areas that they would go for their spring training. Members of the Grapefruit League would hold their spring training across the state of Florida in cities such as Fort Myers and Sarasota. The members of the Cactus League would hold their spring training across the state of Arizona in cities such as Phoenix and Goodyear. The teams also use spring training as a chance for the players on their farms teams to prove themselves worthy of a call up during the regular season. As the training season comes to an end coaches make their final decisions on who you will see taking the field this season!
