Can't wait for this Detroit Tigers season to be over? We now know when the 2020 spring training schedule begins.

The Tigers open with an exhibition game Feb. 21 against Southeastern University in Lakeland, Florida, before opening their Grapefruit League slate the following day against the Philadelphia Phillies, also in Lakeland.

Major League Baseball released the schedules for all 30 teams on Monday. Three of Tigers' first four dates are at Joker Marchant Stadium, with split squads traveling to the Pittsburgh Pirates' and Atlanta Braves' home sites on Feb. 23.

All times are still to be determined.

The Tigers have 33 Grapefruit League games in all, before opening the season March 26 in Cleveland.
