Spring training games begin February 28th and the team's home opener will be April 1st against the Tampa Bay Rays. February 24, 2021 When the Miami Marlins kick off their new season, there will be new health and safety protocols in place at Marlins Park to help keep fans safe during the pandemic. The attendance-challenged Marlins plan to allow fans at home games, although crowds will initially be limited to about 25% of capacity.
Rays pitcher Tyler Glasnow entered spring training ready to go, and he showed it Wednesday in his first session facing hitters, showing off his new weapon — a slider. He looked tremendous,” manager Kevin Cash said. I can’t imagine what it feels like to throw a baseball like he does.
Kevin Kiermaier remains the face of the Rays franchise and there's no place he'd rather be. "I am today with this beautiful logo on my chest, and hopefully I can keep it on as long as possible." This is the 9th spring training with the Rays and Kiermaier comes to camp not the oldest on the team, but with the highest price tag; nearly twice the salary of the second-highest-paid player, Chris Archer, and that creates a lot of trade speculation.
