Today is February 28th and it is also the first day for spring training games. The Jays take on the Yankees at 1pm in a 7 inning game. This year MLB allows shorter games in the first half of spring training. MLB will also allow a team to declare an inning over if the pitcher has throws 20 pitches, irrespective of the number of outs.
