It may seem unbelievable, but it’s true. We can put together a baseball season preview and the immortal words can be spoken loudly: PLAY BALL!!! We have come through a dark time where both sides seemed hell-bent on squandering any opportunity to put their product on the field. It didn’t matter that fans were thirsting for sports of any kind. The owners and players fought like two little kids over a toy fire truck until their parents threatened to take it away. But, just when dad was reaching for the toy and put it in the closet forever, the kids came to their senses and today we can speak the words. Say it with me: PLAY BALL!!!
