With pitchers and catchers reporting in mere days (days!) -- the D-backs, Indians, Phillies, Cardinals and Giants all reporting on Wednesday -- it's time to really start gearing up for baseball season. That means getting into proper mindset, finishing all those pesky things you meant to do and clearing your schedule for the next eight months. 
Fortunately, we're here to help with our handy dandy "Prepare for Spring Training To Do List." Just get these accomplished in the next few days and you'll be ready to go for the season. And tell your friends and family you'll see them in November.
