Boys of Summer Return


Grapefruit League Scores March 2, 2016
Washington Post
Yesterday, for the second day in a row, I was able to check the baseball scores and find that games had been played! It made me happy.

The results don't make me particularly happy, but the idea that I can check the scores and see that Major League Baseball Spring Training games had been played warmed me against the steadily falling temperatures that I experienced yesterday.

Even better? Next week I will be climbing onto a Southwest Airlines 737 and heading to the warmth of South Florida to experience some of the games in person!

Since I have been to both of the stadiums in which I will be watching games, I know what to expect and that is simply--bright sunshine, blue skies, and the need to apply copious amounts of sunscreen! 

To say that I am excited is an understatement. The idea of getting away to Florida to enjoy an early taste of Springtime is very appealing. I am already beginning to think about wearing shorts, flip flops, and short sleeve shirts. Although, as I look at the temperature forecasts, the highs in Sarasota are projected to be 79-81 degrees while in Elkridge, the highs are going to be relatively warm topping out in the 60's and low 70's. 

But Florida has palm trees! And baseball! And Golf! and Sunshine!

Baseball is warming up in the bullpen, and with it the return of summer, pools, and outdoor living.

Maybe the groundhog was right about an early Spring!
