Almost time to play ball in FL

(WFLX) - It's almost time to play ball in Florida!

Major League Baseball teams are preparing for 289 games to be played in 15 Florida locations during this year's spring training.

The Grapefruit League season begins February 25 and runs through April 4. Major League teams have been coming to Florida since 1888 when the Washington Senators and New York Giants played the first pre-season exhibition game in Jacksonville; although, there was a hiatus between 1942 and 1945 because of World War II.
