The city’s baseball team is in sunny Florida for spring training, as pitchers and catchers officially reported Tuesday morning. The only player not to report on time was Juan Cruz, a non-roster invitee looking for a job in the bullpen.
Many players, including Jonathan Papelbon and Roy Halladay, checked in a few days ago. Position players aren’t required to show up until Friday.
Back in South Philadelphia, single-game tickets go on sale Wednesday morning starting at 8:30 a.m. The Majestic Clubhouse Store will open at 7 a.m. and include many guest appearances, as well as a 15-percent discount on merchandise.
