When you are enduring a harsh Michigan winter like we are, there are four words that keep me going: "Pitchers and Catchers Report."

It's the day baseball's spring training begins. It means there will be warmer weather...someday!That day is today. Spring training opens today for the Cubs today, and it opens tomorrow for the Tigers and White Sox. Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and Cleveland started yesterday. There is hope!
