It'll be February in a couple of hours.

Why get excited about February, you ask? Well, not only does it mean it's almost Groundhog Day- and who doesn't enjoy a good Groundhog Day, what with the groundhogs, fireworks, rubber hoses, and such- but it's also the time when Spring Training begins. Oh joy!

Atlanta's pitchers and catchers will report Feb. 16th, which is only a scant two weeks away. Everyone else will report by the 21st, with the first full-squad workout beginning the 22nd.

The official Braves site says the club will begin the exhibition season March 1st when they host the University of Georgia. I'm assuming it'll be UG's baseball team they're hosting, rather than the entire University of Georgia. That'd hardly be fair, now would it?

As a student at UGA, I would love to get at least an at bat against say Kyle Davies or Macay McBride :)
