On Thursday, Major League Baseball announced the reporting dates for all 30 of its clubs. Rockies pitchers and catchers will report to Salt River Fields At Talking Stick on Saturday Feb. 21. The first full team workout will be held a six days later on Feb. 27.

The Rockies will start Spring Training smack dab in the middle of all of the other teams. The World Series Champion San Francisco will report on Feb. 19 along with three other teams. Feb. 23 will be the last day a team reports with three teams reporting on that Monday. The majority of the teams will be reporting on either that Friday or Saturday.

The Arizona Diamondbacks, with whom the Rockies share their Spring Training facility, will report on Friday, Feb. 20.

Colorado’s first game of the spring will take place on March 4 against the Diamondbacks at Salt River Fields At Talking Stick.

This spring will mark the fourth spring training the Rockies will call Salt River Fields home.

The Rockies Spring Training facility is named after the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community on which the facility is built on. Talking Stick is an historical reference to the traditional Pima calendar stick on which carvers recorded historical events and milestones.

Colorado will play a total of 33 Spring Training games spanning from March 4 to April 4. The Rockies will also be playing the Diamondbacks in Hermosillo, Mexico on March 29.

We are officially only 43 days away from the start of Spring Training. Get psyched, Rockies fans. Baseball is almost back.
