With the fabulous weather in recent days in Northeast Ohio, athletes are looking forward to the spring season, even though several winter sports are still under way.

Coaching has begun for athletes not playing a winter sport who will compete in baseball and softball. Coaching for boys tennis and track/field will begin March 6. The season for all spring sports opens the last week in March.

Meanwhile, the Cleveland Indians open the spring training schedule Feb. 25 against the Reds in Arizona. The regular season opens April 3 at Texas, and the home opener is April 11 against the White Sox.
