Here's Where Every MLB Team Will Host An Alternate Training Site
Two weeks ago, Major League Baseball instructed all 30 teams to find a place within 100 miles of their home ballpark for an alternate training site.
The purpose of the alternate training site is to provide an additional place for players to prepare during spring training 2.0, also known as summer camp. It will also be the site where the non-major leaguers on the 60-man player pools can play and train during the season.
Here are the 30 alternate training sites as officially announced by clubs or media reports, with the mile distance to their home ballparks.
This list will be updated as more sites are officially announced.
