The music that gets stuck in my head every Spring Training

For reasons I’ve never been quite able to understand, the theme from Dennis Quaid film The Rookie gets stuck in my head every spring training. So, in order to inflict the same effect on you, here it is:

 

Happy Pitchers and Catchers, everyone!

Drawing Conclusions from Spring Training: Josh Reddick solves the whole world’s problems

As Spring Training games happen, I will have this feature, in which I humorously jump to crazy conclusions based on what has happened in the Spring Training games. These are not meant to be serious.

Today, Josh Reddick solved all the world’s problems when he made these two catches (click here if you can’t see them):

As you can see, with these catches (especially the first one), all of the world’s problems ended. As Reddick scaled the wall like Spider-Man to rob Michael Morse not once but twice, children around the world learned to sing in perfect harmony, lost puppies found their way home, achey backs no longer ached, peace descended on the Middle East, climate change was solved, diseases were cured, and all copies of Batman & Robin spontaneously combusted.

Well, it’s already one day into spring training, and we can already see that the Yankees are doomed. I mean, today they gave up three runs to Florida State, A COLLEGE TEAM. How are they going to beat MLB teams if they give up runs to a few college kids?

But the Tigers, man, they are ready. They blasted Florida Southern 12-0, just like a team of professionals should. Take note, Yankees, this is what a playoff team does- they shut out the amateurs. They didn’t give up three freaking runs. Seriously, the boss would be rolling over in his grave.

Stuff I Found In Storage: Atlanta Braves 1993 Spring Training Program

So, I found this in my family storage. It probably was gotten by my grandfather:

93BravesSTcoverYou see that? Well, yes, it’s an image of Pittsburgh’s hopes and dreams being extinguished, but it also is the cover of the Spring Training program for the Atlanta Braves in 1993, when they were in West Palm Beach.

Let’s go inside, shall we (after the jump):
