Spring training is now in full swing, which means that the Boys of Summer will soon be playing in earnest. Yet, I feel like Punxsutawney Phil, who just saw his shadow. Is spring ever going to show up?
I’m looking out my window at about 4″ of snow overlaying ice. Granted this is not unusual for North Texas, but for the last three weeks we’ve had more freezing weather than we deserve. Send it to Buffalo. Send it to Chicago. They’re used to it and they’re lacking baseball teams. Although in fairness to Cub fans, there actually may be glimmers of hope in ’15.
So, let’s get the season started. It’s the time of year when everyone is excited about their team and there are dreams of a season lasting until October. Play ball!
