This is the last weekend before spring unofficially begins. From what I can gather, it’s been a long winter across North America. Tons of snow!
Pitchers and catchers report next week with the first spring training game set for the end of the month. WGN is showing six games and I think all of them are being broadcast in one form or another. Now, I know spring training doesn’t mean “anything” but after a long cold winter, it’s a welcome relief! I like spring training because it gives the chance for the rookies to show what they got. However, I do think there should be some kind of incentive in spring training. Maybe a Grapefruit/Cactus Cup or something?
Bring on the boys of summer!
