This piece is a few years old, but I came across it this morning, and I would say the timing is still appropriate. The weather might still be iffy in spots, but only five days remain until spring officially arrives!
is now underway
oh what fun it is
watching baseball played
the grapefruit league
the cactus league
who’ll make team
and who won’t
get in shape
Attempting to beat a 12:30 a.m. curfew on March 5, 1958, the Dodgers’ Duke Snider, Johnny Podres, and Don Zimmer sustained minor injuries in a car accident in Vero Beach, Florida. This automobile mishap was the third involving the Dodgers within the last two months, with prior crashes involving Roy Campanella and Jim Gilliam.
Today, pitchers and catchers for most teams around the league will be reporting for Spring Training! Welcome back, baseball. We missed you.
Pitchers and catchers report two weeks from today!
Hang in there… Only 18 days left until pitchers and catchers report!
As winter storms continue to hit all over the country, we can find warmth in remembering that only 23 days remain until pitchers and catchers report!
