Spring Training. The sweetest two words in the English language. Spring is upon us and that means baseball is here -- as is the spitting of sunflower seeds, the smell of pine tar and that sweet sound of the crack of the bat.
"For nine innings, baseball is the story of David and Goliath, of Samson, Cinderella, Paul Bunyan, Homer's Iliad and the Count of Monte Cristo. This is a game for all America, this baseball. A game for boys and for men". -An excerpt from Ernie Harwell's poem entitled 'The Game for All America'
