It's one of the best days on the sports calendar, when the boys of summer suit up for the spring.
The Orioles are getting back to business.
Spring training 2017 officially got underway on Monday when O's pitchers and catchers reported to the team's facility in Sarasota, Fla.
A couple of the bigger names on-hand were 2016 American League Reliever of the Year, closer Zach Britton and free-agent addition, catcher Welington Castillo.
The first workout for the Birds' pitchers and catchers is scheduled for Tuesday. The first full-squad workout is set for Friday.
The Orioles first spring training game is scheduled for Feb. 24 against the Detroit Tigers.
