Looks like it will be entirely kids facing Florida State, so I am sorry Seminoles players, you will not be facing the likes of Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee.

Hamels will pitch in Tampa on Saturday, and Joe Blanton will get the first start by the Phab Phive at Bright House Field.  Cliff Lee will make his spring training debut on Tuesday against the Detroit Tigers, which I believe is televised.
