Pitchers and Catchers begin reporting today. Unless you are at Spring Training there is still no Major League Baseball to watch, but baseball is beginning. The day pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training is anticlimactic, yet still exciting. This day is circled on many calendars, yet when the day arrives, there is nothing to see or report. Baseball is waking up from the winter. Soon there will be Spring Training games. While these games are just exhibition, it is wonderful to have baseball to watch again. It may still be the middle of February, but the warm sunshine and the green grass are back. The cold of winter will begin giving away to the warmth of spring and the heat of summer. It might not seem like it, but baseball is officially back as of today. The road to October starts now.
What a beautiful sight. (www.m.mlb.com)
Happy Pitchers and Catchers Day everyone.
