MLB Spring Training 2024: Dates, Locations, and How to Watch

The MLB Spring Training Schedule for 2024 is underway, with players reporting to their respective training facilities to gear up for the upcoming season. Here's a detailed look at the training locations, game schedules, and where to catch the action, including how to bet on the season using FanDuel Sportsbook.

How Is MLB Spring Training Organized?

Half of MLB teams report to Arizona for MLB Spring Training, while the other half reports to Florida.

This means fifteen teams make up the Grapefruit League (Florida) and the other 15 make up the Cactus League (Arizona). For the duration of spring training, teams only play other teams within their league. Each team will play approximately 30 pre-season games.

The training facilities in Florida are scattered across the state—in areas including Tampa, Sarasota, and Fort Myers. In Arizona, all facilities are in the Phoenix metropolitan area.
