There’s nothing quite like the arrival of a brand new baseball season. Everything that accompanies the annual return to the diamond is what makes the sport so unique. A fresh start in league standings, stiff gloves that need breaking in, the sudden acceptance of grown men spitting sunflower seeds in public, the crack of new bats becoming battle-tested (though it’s more of a ping at the high school level) and all the glorious sunshine that comes with it.
