It’s the Humpday Boil!
It’s February 8, 2023. The very first pitchers and catchers will begin reporting in just five days, and everyone will have reported by February 21. The first Spring Training game will be played on February 24, with the Astros taking the field for the first time on the 25th. All that to say that Opening Day is still a while from now. It’s still fifty days until the Astros open their title defense at home against the Chicago White Sox.
