For Minnesotans after this long winter filled with snow, the idea of the sun and seasonal warmth sounds incredibly rejuvenating! Maybe time to fly down and walk through the gates of Hammond Stadium and see the boys of summer in early action. Spring Training Baseball in Florida presents a stark contrast to the weather at home in March, historically the snowiest in Minnesota.

Today Wednesday, February 13 the Twins Pitchers and Catchers report to training with full team workouts beginning on Monday, February 18. Now the fun part, baseball comes home to Minnesota, Target Field in 43 days. FORTY-THREE DAYS! As we shovel out of yet another snow storm and I’m running out of places to stack snow, I want to know who was the wise guy during scheduling that said, ” Yeah! Minnesota could host home opener on Thursday, March 28″! Thanks a lot, buddy.

Well, I’ll still be there, snow boots on, I better start watching baseball movies to get me ready!
