The day all us Dodger fans have been waiting for, Dodgers pitchers and catchers report today.

The dreaded offseason has officially come to a close as the Dodgers pitchers and catchers report to Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Arizona today. Their first official workout took place at 9AM this morning. From here on out we are in baseball full swing. The first official game is just a few weeks away and before you know it, opening day is going to be around the corner.

With the offseason finally ending, some of the Dodger players ended their Twitter hiatus in order to post about their spring training feelings. Here are a few of my favorites:

The best one hands down was Clayton Kershaw‘s Tweet about his daughter Cali. I am pretty sure it made my heart melt.

Alex Wood has found a new love for Amazon Prime.

Perhaps my favorite Dodger on Twitter is A.J. Ellis. His sense of humor gets me every time and his tweet yesterday afternoon did not disappoint.

Whether it is heartfelt posts about little babies, Amazon Prime obsessions or awkward communal showers, it it clear from the Dodgers’ Twitter pages that they are all prepared to get the season under way and so am I.

On a serious note, Alanna Rizzo tweeted this morning from Camelback Ranch.

One of the biggest question marks coming into spring training and the 2016 season is whether or not Hyun-jin Ryu is ready to pitch. Rizzo reported that he is not 100% ready, but working towards goals and the staff are determined to not rush his recovery. She also went on to say that Ryu may not be in the starting rotation come Opening Day, but if he is able to pitch sometime in March during a spring training game it will be much more likely.

Since it is Dave Roberts first season as a manager, he told Rizzo he consulted other successful coaches and managers in order to get advice for the season.

In the next few weeks as the spring training season gets underway, we are going to be highlighting certain players and key games here at Dodgers Way. We all survived the offseason, and now its the best time of the year, baseball season has arrived!
