Spring is in the air.

Well, maybe not spring just yet. But for Major League Baseball teams, a new season is about to get under way. The defending World Series Champion St. Louis Cardinals' pitchers and catchers reported on Saturday to training camp in Jupiter, Fla.

The Kansas City Royals, on the other hand, will be attempting to make the playoffs for the first time since the 1985 season. After finishing 71-91 in 2011, the Royals hope a new season will result in more wins. Kansas City's pitchers and catchers reported on Monday to spring training in Tempe, Ariz.
