If you're looking forward to Spring Training in 2018, the Tigers are the first team to release their home schedule.

We see that the games start as early as they did last year but this year is likely because of the earlier Opening Day (last year was because of the WBC).

The spring schedule continues to grow, albeit without any announcements from the Mets.

I wonder if a season like 2017 has an effect on Spring Training attendance the next year.

Or if it's more tied to the moves made in the winter.

I don't think 2017 does so much. It was injuries more than sucking, so the 'hype' of 2018 should still be there. Thor. Conforto. etc. If you're not "bleh, I don't even know if I'm gonna watch in 2018" maybe you skip, but hope Springs eternal right? so if you're excited for the season and Spring Training's your thing, i imagine you still go.

I think that people who go every year will still go. But those who make the trip based on their enthusiasm may very well decide to skip the trip to Florida next spring. So yeah, I think that 2017 will have at least some effect on spring training attendance, but I don't know if it will be substantial.

The Mets haven't announced their Spring Training schedule but many of the Grapefruit League teams have so you can see most of the schedule here:

I'm gonna guess neither, nor.

Beyond that the older I get the shorter the off season feels. It's about a month now.
Make the Mets great again.

3 night games (I don't think that there were any last year). 2 days where you can see the Mets twice. I'm sure that a game or two will be added before the season starts.

Let me tell you something: I have a big set of balls.
