ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Cardinals will face four teams that made the playoffs this year and five American League squads as part of a 28-game spring training slate that begins on March 5.
The Cardinals will play 18 games at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, Florida, their offseason home since 1998. That includes three games as the “road” team against the Miami Marlins, their fellow stadium tenant.
Pitchers and catchers report to Florida on February 19 and start work the following day. Workouts for the rest of the team are scheduled to begin on February 25.
The exhibition season concludes on April 3 in Tennessee against their Triple-A Pacific Coast League affiliate, the Memphis Redbirds. The Cardinals released their 2015 spring training schedule Tuesday.
