Spring Training is officially under way. We are inching closer and closer to actual games. While Spring Training does not necessarily tell you whether or not your favorite team is going to be a surprise contender or a massive disappointment, it does mean it is time to find your glove. Before too much longer we will all be sitting in the stands tanning under the hot summer sun, engulfed in the sights and sounds that is professional baseball. Spring Training games do not have your favorite players in the line up for very long. I personally prefer if I do not recognize anyone because it means the line up is set and they are getting a good look at who is going to be the 25th player and who goes to AAA and who goes to AA. Baseball is almost here. Hang on just a little longer. The Cactus League and the Grapefruit League will bring back the boys of summer as they prepare for another year of amazing catches, beautiful swings, brilliant pitching, in your face arguments, hilarious bloopers, and enough memories to last a life time. Spring Training is back and life is about to get so much better.
You can find your favorite team from the Cactus League here and from the Grapefruit League here. Lets get this season going. It has been an extremely long winter, and I for one and tired of the snow and ice and am ready for the sun, the fresh-cut grass, the crack of the bat, and the pop of the glove. Baseball is back and life is good.
