Reds & Indians Spring Training Forecast

While we do have our own warm up over the coming days, it won’t be nearly warm enough to go outside and play baseball. However it is warm enough for the Reds and Indians in Arizona for spring training.

Today, pitchers and catchers report for spring training in Goodyear, Arizona. The weather looks to be on the mild side for the Reds and Indians for the next few days. Upper 60s are expected today and Wednesday, middle 60s on Thursday. With the mild temperatures comes the chance for rain each day, with the best chance coming Wednesday. 

The mild temperatures currently in Arizona won’t be making it to the Miami Valley any time soon. It’s not until early May that we see average highs in the upper 60s in the Dayton area.

A pilot program by CareSource aimed at holistically helping the non-profit insurer’s clients is getting some federal attention.

Steven Wagner, acting assistant secretary at U.S. Health and Human Services, will visit Dayton Wednesday morning to learn more about the CareSource’s Life Services/JobConnect program.

Wagner will learn about how CareSource, which manages Medicaid plans, has been piloting ways to help clients with other aspects of their lives that could be affecting their well being, from housing to employment to education.

CareSource created a program in 2015 called Life Services, which is a voluntary program to help clients search for jobs and can coordinate support to navigate other issues like food insecurity or a lack of stable housing.

“The long-term goal is to help people become financially, emotionally and socially secure so that they are able to live subsidy-free,” CareSource states.
