Pitchers and catchers report to camp first (early to mid-February) followed soon by the position players. Most often, players start the preseason by using the nearby practice fields where fans can often watch up close. Batting practice (BP) balls are often hit over the fences and fans could have opportunities to catch one or more baseballs. (Some complexes may have their own individual policies and rules.) Once the exhibition game season starts, the players usually take batting practice inside the stadiums and the fans (who paid for admission and arrive when the gates open) usually have opportunities to catch BP balls. Once the games begins, fans can hope to catch foul balls and home run balls.
Watch Major League Spring Training pre-season games in Florida (the Grapefruit League) and Arizona (the Cactus League). Both day games and night games are played.
The exhibition game season usually starts around the end of February or first week of March and ends at the end of March (before the regular season begins). Tickets usually go on sale months before then all the way through the day of the Spring Training games.
Some games get sold out. Some teams have already published their 2014 Spring Training home game schedules.

There are numerous opportunities for fans to meet the players and/or obtain autographs during Spring Training.
Those opportunities begin as soon as the players report to camp - even before the exhibition game season starts. The nearby practice fields are often great places to obtain autographs before and after the players practice. Once the exhibition game season begins, fans have additional opportunities to get players' autographs before and after the games.
