Enough of spring training; let’s play ball. If you’re a Cleveland Indians or Cincinnati Reds fan, you can’t wait for each team’s home opener.
The Reds start their season with a six-game homestand beginning March 28 against the Pirates at Great American Ball Park, then host the Brewers. They will try to improve on last year’s 67-95 record.
The defending 91-71 AL Central champion Indians start their season in Minnesota, then play their first game at Progressive Field on April 1 against the White Sox. It sold out in January. It’s usually cold (maybe a few flurries).
