Earlier today pitchers and catchers began reporting to their respective training camps throughout Florida and Arizona. Although the weather here in New York hasn’t quite warmed up yet and the piles of snow remind of us the brutal winter and the not so great off-season the Yankees had, before we know it Spring will be upon us. The winter will soon be a distant memory and we will be focussed on a fresh baseball season accompanied by budding plants and and transforming trees.
We have missed baseball dearly, and although it’s probable that nothing too important will happen over the next few weeks, they will still be welcomed with open arms. The 2011 Baseball Season is dawning, and with it a new chance for the Yankees to capture their 28th World Series Championship, and I for one cannot wait. Although the new year officially began on January 1st for many, or maybe on February 3rd for others, for myself it almost feels like it begins today. Baseball is upon us.
