You haven’t even broken out the sweaters yet, and it's time to start making plans for spring baseball?
That’s right, the season ended like a couple of seconds ago, and the Dodgers have already released their 2015 spring training schedule. Would advise you to circle the dates on your calendar, but that would assume you already have one for next year.
The Dodgers will start their seventh season in Phoenix next spring, slowly putting distance between themselves and Dodgertown.
They will start their spring campaign on March 4 in what has become their traditional opener against the team they share the Camelback Ranch complex with, the Chicago White Sox.
They have 30 games currently scheduled, 17 at Camelback. For all you weekend commuters, they have scheduled at least one home game during each of the spring’s four weekends of games.
The Dodgers play their final game in Arizona on April 1 before returning to Southern California to play the Angels for three games in the teams' annual Freeway Series. Those games are at Angel Stadium on April 2 and April 3 and at Dodger Stadium on April 4.
On a positive note, it’s routine schedule. There will be no international excursions to Taiwan to end the spring or to Australia to open the regular season.
