The winter months are particularly painful for baseball fans as MLB lies in hibernation following the Fall Classic. Now though, there is a light at the end of the tunnel as baseball clubs from across the league have headed down to sunnier climes for spring training.

While Opening Day may still be just a faint shape on the horizon, lucky fans down in Florida and Arizona have taken advantage of the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of their favorite stars -- and they have the photos to prove it.
