Go Beantown! Barbara Todaro.  When I was a kid growing up in New York, waiting for that news that "Pitchers and Catchers Report to Spring Training" gave us hope that winter would soon be over, although it certainly did not look like it outside. Spring and Life returns. Seeing Mickey Mantle and Elston Howard warming up in Spring Training with palm trees swaying in the back ground...Oh Joy! Jeff
