Spring Training always makes me forget about all of the negativity surrounding this team, and it spawns a new hope that things can and will be better. There's nothing like Spring Training, the Grapefruit League, and watching professional baseball in February and March.
Matt and I expect to be at Digital Domain Park when pitchers and catchers report to camp in February, snapping photos and live blogging as usual. It will be the 22nd consecutive year I've attended Spring Training, and each year seems to be better than the last. I find genuine enjoyment in the whole experience, as it marks the first official day of the baseball season; it's the end of the talking and the start of the doing; and the beginning of a nine (and hopefully 10) month journey with the team I truly love to follow.
