Get ready, Toronto Blue Jays fans. The 2016 season is almost here.

The MLB regular season doesn’t start until Apr. 3, but pitchers and catchers will report to Blue Jays camp in just 10 days.

With Spring Training looming, the Blue Jays’ equipment truck was loaded up in Toronto on Thursday and is now en route to Dunedin, Fla.

Pitchers and catchers report on Feb. 21, with the first game of Spring Training scheduled March 1 against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Meanwhile, significant progress has been made on the dirt infield at Rogers Centre in recent days.

The players will test out the new infield for the first time on Apr. 8 against the Boston Red Sox. The Blue Jays announced Thursday that the home opener has officially sold out.
