Grapefruit League: Spring training to Florida is as natural as orange trees. Dating back to 1908 when the Cincinnati Reds played the St. Petersburg Saints, spring training and Florida go hand in hand. Around 6,640 fans (per game) attended the 33-day Grapefruit League schedule in 2010.

In the League: Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox, Florida Marlins, Minnesota Twins, New York Yankees, Pittsburgh Pirates, Tampa Bay Rays, Washington Nationals, Baltimore Orioles, Detroit Tigers, Houston Astros, New York Mets, Philadelphia Phillies, St. Louis Cardinals and the Toronto Blue Jays.

Where They Play: Teams play throughout the southern half of Florida including Lake Buena Vista, Sarasota, Fort Myers, Lakeland, Jupiter, Kissimmee, Port St. Lucie, Tampa, Clearwater, Bradenton, Port Charlotte, Dunedin and Viera. See a map and more information here.
