Hope. Hope is the emotion that all Chicago Cub fans feel every March as the Cubs begin spring training in Mesa, Arizona. Spring training 2014 also marks the grand opening of the Cub's new spring training facility, for now known as Cubs Park. Naming rights for the new park will be sold to someone, so the name will likely be different next year.
Because it has been ridiculously cold this winter, right now, as I watch the game being played on sun drenched green grass, envy is what I am really feeling. Right now I want to be sitting in that ball park, in my shorts, worrying about whether I have enough sun tan lotion on.
It's freezing in Detroit, but baseball fans are feeling warm because the Detroit Tigers have opened their spring training season. It's the top of the 7th inning, and the Tigers are beating Atlanta 4-3.
Are you wondering about the quote above? Listen hear to one of the greatest voices to ever call a baseball game.
We may be still buried in snow in Michigan, but spring is surely just around the corner because spring training has begun. The Cub's first spring training game is this Thursday! This is the best time of the year for Chicago Cubs fans. Now I have to figure out how to get the MLB At Bat app on my new Samsung TV.
