It ain’t Stravinsky, but I like it. Yeah, some people think it’s hokey, overdone and a gimmicky. Maybe it is all those things, but it has always been a signpost for me. Not just an indicator that baseball is just around the corner but that winter is starting to turn into spring, as sure as we add 3-4 minutes of daylight a day. Yeah, it’s ‘truck day’.
The equipment truck has departed and all the gear will be stowed in lockers to await “pitchers and catchers”, who report on Sunday. There may be more winter, more storms, more snow, more collapsed roofs, but there’s no turning back now. Helloooo, baseball!
