With the Super Bowl coming up in just over a week, the NHL All-Star Game in a few days, and the NBA season reaching its halfway point, it’s hard to find time to fit the word ‘baseball’ into any sentence relative to national sports.
But when pitchers and catchers report to spring training on February 14, that will all change.
After all, it seemed like only a short time ago that the postseason matchups were becoming finalized and nearly everyone in America asked of their team, “Is this our year?”
And maybe it was your year.
Then again, maybe it wasn’t.
Either way, last season is in the past, and that means fans across the country are crossing the days off their calendar.
Whether it’s how many days until spring training or how many days until opening day, one thing is for certain: baseball will be here before we know it.
And that’s a beautiful thing.
