What day do pitchers and catchers report?

Spring is in the air and pitchers/catchers are coming out of hibernation. CC Sabathia is gingerly stepping onto a scale, and Josh Beckett is inspecting his hand for blisters. It's time for some baseball. So let's do a quick recap of when pitchers and catchers report for some of the most important teams in baseball:

When do pitchers and catchers report?

Boston Red Sox - Feb 14
Milwaukee Brewers - Feb 16
San Francisco Giants - Feb 14
St Louis Cardinals - Feb 13
NY Yankees - Feb 14
Philadelphia Phillies - Feb 13

If you're wondering which team has pitchers and catchers report the latest it's the Florida Marlins they won't be driving across town until Feb 18.

March 31st (Opening Day 2011)

Yikes - it's been three months since our last post. The SF Giants are the champions of the world and Joe and I have been catching our breath. Excuses aside, please accept an apology from the both of us. It's been three months of silence from Opening Day Cards and that's unacceptable. A few thank you's are in order.

1. Thanks for season #1 - we had a blast building a vivid community, talking baseball and baseball cards, spitting seeds and watching our hometown teams fail.

2. Thank you number 2 is presumptuous... Thanks for coming back for 2011. Joe and I are working on a game plan for 2011 - more free baseball cards, baseball talk, maybe a spring training trip with video interviews? There's a lot to come and we're excited.

For now a quote from the great Rogers Hornsby - "I stare out the window and wait for spring."

We'll be back! Thank you for the community. Chris & Joe (ODC)
