Snow covers the fields. We sit by the fire and dissect and discuss last season’s successes and failures, the surprising victories, the crushing losses.
The New Year begins and the sun creeps a bit higher each day. Seed catalogs arrive. We draw plans, write lists, and plot the course for next year and beyond. We finalize the lineup for the coming season.
In a few weeks the seed packets will arrive, the anticipation will end and the pitchers and catchers will report to spring training.
