We are one day closer to the start of spring training and the regular season for the Colorado Rockies … and that is a beautiful thought as the winter chill continues.

Let’s start this edition of Quick Hits with a look at spring training. Major League Baseball has announced the dates for when pitchers and catchers report as well as the dates for the first full squad workouts for all 30 teams. That includes the Colorado Rockies, who will welcome pitchers and catchers officially on February 13 and hold their first full squad workout on February 18.

Colorado’s first spring training game comes on February 23 at Salt River Fields in Scottsdale, Ariz., against the Arizona Diamondbacks. You can check out the entire Rockies spring training schedule by clicking here.

Spring training is absolutely a “bucket list” item for baseball fans. However, if you can’t make it to Arizona this year to check out the Rockies, don’t worry. We will be there when pitchers and catchers report and bring you the latest from Scottsdale.

And don’t forget, Rockies spring training doesn’t just take place in Arizona this season. Colorado will also see action in Monterey, Mexico, Albuquerque, N.M. (against the Triple-A Isotopes) and in Fort Myers, Fla. The Florida stop will be a contest against the Minnesota Twins that will officially wrap up spring training on March 26 before the Rockies open the season at the Miami Marlins two days later.
