Spring Training of MLB

The Spring Training in the Major League Baseball is a series of practice and exhibition games which precedes the beginning of the regular MLB season. Obviously, having a long and established spring training season helps the players, especially the new players to get ready for the audition for roster and position sports. The existing players can also get a chance to practice prior to get into the competitive mode. Fans too get a huge opportunity to get their heroes’ autographs as there is less or no tension on them.

Regular Season of MLB

Right now the MLB regular season has 12 games per team. The season begins on the first Sunday of April and ends on the first Sunday of October every year. During the course of the season, teams need to compete for one of the five playoff births in their league. They can win one of these berths by either winning their division or by getting a wild card spot.
