It’s almost February, and we’re still seeing changes to the schedule! New: the Washington Nationals have added a March 2 game against the Georgetown Hoyas at Space Coast Stadium.
The game is set for noon. You can view the whole Nationals schedule here, as well as the whole Grapefruit League schedule here.
Games against collegiate opponents used to be an essential part of spring training for most MLB teams; we remember back when the Twins trained in Orlando and would take on Rollins College in the first spring game. These days the college games are making a comeback: Philadelphia is hosting Florida State on Feb. 29, the Yankees are hosting the University of South Florida on March 2, and Detroit is hosting Florida Southern in the traditional Tigers opener at Joker Marchant Stadium. In fact, it’s a big spring for the Mocs: they’re also playing the Orioles on April 2.
