VANCOUVER—The 2010 Olympics, held in the largest city ever to host a Winter Games, have not gone completely according to plan. Before the games even began, organizers lamented how Washington, D.C., was getting a surfeit of snow that would have helped certain venues. Then, a luger lost his life to a track that was apparently both the fastest in the world and the one with the least padding.

For blizzard-battled sports fans in Washington, D.C., it is some comfort that the reporting of pitchers and catchers, the official heralding of spring training for a new major league baseball season, is in a week. Spring training provides a structure to get in shape, both mentally and physically, for all who desire to play the game competitively.

The rules of the game and their implementation become embedded second nature to each player likely to succeed.
