Counting Down to Pitchers and Catchers…
When I began this edition of the blog, the annual rite of spring that is “pitchers and catchers” was only 11 days, 23 hours and 55 minutes away.
And if you need further proof that the final leg of the countdown is upon us, all you need to do is watch the Sox staff pack up and get ready to head down to Glendale to mobilize the operation at Camelback Ranch.
The next milestone, of course, is the first spring training game–on Friday, March 5 when the Sox will host the Dodgers at Camelback–and then there’s the full slate of games before the Monday, April 5 regular season opener at the Cell vs. the Tribe. Below is the home schedule for both the Sox and Dodgers in Glendale.
For the record, we’re now 11 days, 23 hours and 42 minutes from pitchers and catchers, but who’s counting?
