Spring training is here! Starting every February, Major League Baseball (@mlb) runs a six-week series of practices and exhibition games as a warm-up for the regular season. New players use spring training to try out for a roster and established players get game-like practice in before serious competition begins.

Crowds flock to the games in Arizona (Cactus League) and Florida (Grapefruit League) to bask in warm weather and get a first look at their favorite teams. Can't make it this year?  Browse the action on the #springtraining hashtag and follow your favorite teams on Instagram: @cardinals, @redsox, @yankees, @dodgers and @sfgiants. You can also tap the blue location text above this image to see photos and videos from the Detroit Tigers' (@tigers) spring stadium.
