The first offical sign of the oncoming hope of Spring is finally here, and it has nothing to do with a groundhog in Pennsylvania, but EVERYTHING to do with pitchers and catchers reporting to their respective Cactus League and Grapefruit League training camps starting this week! Let the games begin and give us hope that the warmth of Spring is surely coming…
Maybe Daisuke Matsuzaka and Hideki Okajima will appreciate this Dirt Dog Haiku:
Shadows stretch for First,
Balm fills air on scented breeze;
Leather pops with joy.
