It’s the day that every Indians fan has waited for since Michael Martinez hit into the final depressing out of the 2016 World Series, stopping a second Cleveland championship last season.
Yes Tribe fans – today is the day that pitchers and catchers report to spring training in Goodyear, Arizona.
While today is just the reporting day, the team will practice for the first time on Tuesday, and the full team will be in for their first practice on Thursday.
Indians fans and media for the last few days have been celebrating the boys of summer return on twitter.
