This week, pitchers and catchers started reporting to camps in Arizona and Florida, and before the end of the month, exhibition games will start. The date of Opening Day 2024 is set for Thursday, March 28. In January, MLB released a schedule of each team’s spring training reporting dates.

The inaugural spring training meeting between the two division foes is scheduled for February 22 on ESPN in the Cactus League. On February 24, all 30 MLB clubs will compete in Cactus and Grapefruit League games after a few other teams begin spring training the next day.

Before spring training officially ends, there will be two regular-season games. March 20–21 will see the Dodgers and Padres play the Seoul Series in Seoul, South Korea.

On March 24, MLB teams will reopen at their home stadiums for three days of exhibition play prior to the official start of the season on March 28.


The Cactus League is for teams based in Arizona, and the Grapefruit League is for clubs based in Florida. Teams only face other teams inside their state. The Dodgers, for instance, whose spring training facilities are in Arizona, will not play the Braves, whose spring training facilities are in Florida, during spring training.

Tickets can be bought from here.
