It seems not that long ago that we were talking about the World Series. Yet, with all the other action in the sports world over the last three months and NCAA Football, the Super Bowl and the NBA season reaching the half-way point, somehow it’s already time for pitchers and catchers to report to Spring Training.

While we are still some 45 days from opening day, we figured we’d get a jump on the MLB Watch coverage this season. In our first coverage of the spring, as you might expect, there are a lot of fun and games as the players get back into the groove over the next month and a half preparing for the 2011 Major League Baseball season.

Check out some of the images courtesy of Yahoo below.
