For a die-hard baseball fan, especially one who doesn't closely follow other sports, the off-season can be a very restless time of the year. I find myself in that boat right now but, yesterday I welcomed good news via a couple of tweets from a few Yankee beat writers:
100 days 'til Pitchers and Catchers report to Spring Training
Pitchers and Catchers report date: 2/19
First Workout: 2/20
Position Players report date: 2/24
First Full Squad Workout: 2/25
Music to my ears!
This news, with the fact that the off-season awards will be announced starting on Monday is enough to make me forget about the horrible news week it has been. Well, almost. My thoughts and prayers go out to both the Penn State victims and to Nationals Catcher Wilson Ramos.
