Indians pitchers and catchers officially reported to spring training in Goodyear, Arizona this morning. Here is visual proof that players haven't just reported, they've also gotten dressed and picked up a baseball:

Real cool, Mark, real cool.
Pitchers and catchers aren't the only one's who've made it there:

The team's best player is already in camp, four days before he had to report:

Sadly, not all of his pals have joined him yet:

It looks like he'll be there soon though:
Send him JoAnna, send him!
