Believe it or not, baseball is just a few months away. Proof: On Tuesday the Minnesota Twins announced their Spring Training schedule for 2013. The team will once again train in Ft. Myers, Fla., at the Lee County Sports Complex, which is where they've spent the last 22 years.
Pitchers and catchers will report on Feb. 12, with their first workout scheduled for Feb. 13. The rest of the team will report on Feb. 15 and will begin working out on Feb. 16. The spring's first game takes place on Feb. 23 when the Twins visit the Baltimore Orioles -- their first "home" game of the spring comes the next day when they welcome the Tampa Bay Rays.
The team will begin selling spring training tickets on Jan. 12, and will be offering exclusive travel packages for the first time. Those packages include various travel options, tickets and meet-and-greets with select Twins players.
